Defibrillators – Familiarisation session in the use of defibrillators/automated external defibrillators (AEDs)


Tutor: Russell Harrison-Paul


This session is open to all members of staff, particularly those who are already first aiders.


At each session there will be an initial short presentation at the designated start time, followed by an open supported practice session. Staff are not required to stay for the whole session but should aim to allow a minimum of an hour to have sufficient time to practice.


What are defibrillators/AEDs?


Portable AEDs are lightweight devices (stored in a small carry case) that are relatively easy to operate and are intended for use in emergency situations when a casualty has a serious cardiac rhythm disturbance causing unconsciousness, such as a heart attack. The quicker life saving first aid and a defibrillator are used on a casualty, the better the outlook for survival. The University has invested in a number of AEDs across all major campuses. They are designed to be used by anyone, regardless of whether or not they hold first aid qualifications.
