Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are becoming more and more publically accessible. Our AED training covers where to find one, when to send for one and when and how to use it.
AED training can be incorporated into a tailored course, or be provided as a shorter stand-alone course.
You can find your nearest publically accessible AED at www.aedlocations.co.nz. Survival rates decrease significantly with every minute that defibrillation is delayed.
Training will include the following:
- Environmental conditions
- The primary assessment process
- Patient preparation
- Patient dignity and privacy.
We also explain and demonstrate current CPR processes according to ANZCOR guidelines.
During the course, a practical demonstration of the HeartSine 500P Defibrillator will be given, after which candidates may have an opportunity to practise with the equipment provided.
