A Defibrillator is an automated external portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia’s of ventricular fibrillation that uses electricity to re-start the heart or shock it back into its correct rhythm. Defibrillators are used to prevent or correct an arrhythmia, a heartbeat that is uneven or that is too slow or too fast. Defibrillators can also restore the heart’s beating if the heart suddenly stops with a sudden cardiac arrest.
When to use a defibrillator?
You can use a defibrillator whenever CPR is needed. A person normally needs CPR if they are unresponsive and not breathing when having a sudden cardiac arrest. This is when the heart suddenly stops pumping. If someone is unresponsive and not breathing make sure an ambulance is called (000) and start CPR and use a defibrillator as soon as possible. The defibrillator analyses the heart rhythm and decides whether an electric shock is needed. Remember time is crucial for a better chance of survival so a defibrillator is a must for every First Aid room and for workplace safety.
No matter the size of your workplace whether low or high risk a defibrillator can reduce the risk of permanent injury and or fatality for anyone having a sudden cardiac arrest.
