Automated External Defibrillation (AED)
Performing effective CPR can improve the chances of patient survival by up to 20%. Combine this with the correct use of an on-scene defibrillator, and the survival rate can reach as high as 50%.
Whilst CPR saves many lives, it is only one link in the chain of survival. It takes five short minutes until the brain dies due to oxygen depletion in cardiac arrest. Every minute without oxygen can reduce the patient's chances of survival by 10%.

This course is suitable for anyone. No prior first aid experience is required as basic life support will be covered as part of the training.
