There is an ever increasing number of individuals, campaigns and charities working tirelessly to raise the awareness of the importance of CPR and defibrillation and heart screening.  As part of their work many raise funds to place or contribute towards a defibrillator.  We are very fortunate to be able to work with a number of these and, as the popularity of the iPAD continues to grow, we look for ways to develop useful resources that we can make freely available to them to help.

So – we have a kit that we lend to people aimed at helping them inform people and demystify defibrillation and CPR.

This kit consists of:

  • A pull up banner that gives the statistics about cardiac arrest
  • A pull up banner highlighting the importance of early CPR and early defibrillation
  • An A5 booklet: “What you need to know about defibrillators and CPR”
  • A Brayden CPR manikin to demonstrate / train people to understand how and why to perform CPR
  • An iPAD SP1 trainer to demonstrate how a defibrillator works and how simple they are to use
  • A DefibSafe defibrillator cabinet to help people understand what a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) is
  • Fundraising buckets
  • Fundraising “tins”

If you are interested in having these kits then please contact us and we would be delighted to add you to our calendar wherever possible.

We are so pleased that these have been a real success and we have had some excellent feedback:

Stuart Ballantyne, Callout Organiser, Trossachs Search & Rescue Team said:

“iPAD-AED produce an excellent booklet called ‘What you need to know about Defibrillators and CPR’ which gives lots of accurate advice in a simple, clear format.

Trossachs Search & Rescue delivers CPR & AED training to around 350 people every year as well as managing 50 public access defibrillators across Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. We distribute the booklet to communities in which we place our defibrillators to inform and educate people – it is an invaluable source of information.”

Gillian Hutchinson, David Nelson Memorial Fund said:

“….the A5 booklets are brilliant!  We started making them available at the defib awareness sessions and at the last couple of sessions put them on the seats and everyone took them home for info and to show friends and family and for reference.  Adele at the ambulance service referred to them too during the sessions where we put them out for everyone.  We would definitely like to carry on using them at the awareness sessions.  I think that we have some left but they are the sort of thing we would love to get more of in the future.  It is unlikely that we will be doing any more awareness sessions now until the new year but we have another batch of defibs that we hope to get installed soon so more villages will need the awareness sessions when the weather improves after Christmas!”
