Immediate access to an AED is at the core of Professional Standards
All dental practitioners & clinical staff in Primary Care, must be able to start CPR and use an AED within 3 minutes .
An AED should be immediately available in all Primary Care settings, preferably suitable for use on both adults & children .
An AED is an essential piece of equipment for medical professionals and their non-clinical staff. The iPAD AED is not only simple to use, it is also supported by a suite of training resources which means it can be simply integrated in to practice and skills can be kept up to date.
Patients & staff In safe hands
Medical Officer, Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue.
The iPAD is a well considered and thought out AED that offers ease of use which is important to us as most members have not seen an AED prior to joining the team let alone understand how to use them. The ability to easily switch between adult and paediatric modes without needing different pads was a real winner for me as it will significantly reduce our costs and keeps things simple for the operator.
Dr. Katie Barber, GP East Hanney
Even if it were not used for 15 years, it would still be wortwhile if it were to save someone’s life. Having access to a defibrillator can be the difference between life and death… It just takes the pressure off the ambulance service. It gives the elderly population in the village comfort knowing they can get help before the ambulance service arrive.
Dick Tracey, Divisional Responder Manager, SCAS
There is no question – it will save additional lives. Sudden cardiac arrest is the UK’s single biggest killer and when somebody goes into this horrendous medical condition the chances of successful resuscitation reduces by 10 per cent per minute. CPR can buy time but the definitive treatment for this is a shock from a defibrillator.
Dr Rubin Minhas, Nuffield Health Group Medical & Scientific Director
These machines are easy to use and they save lives. Our investment in these devices, which will help us to further protect staff & members alike, is invaluable & a sign of ensuring our members feel as safe as possible whilst they enjoy the benefits of being more active
