Learn how you could save a life with an iPAD AED

It is crucial to act quickly when faced with someone having a cardiac arrest. It is widely recognised that a shock from an AED should be delivered without delay as part of the chain of survival. The definitive treatment for sudden cardiac arrest is a shock from a defibrillator.

This is a simple yet comprehensive video which shows how to set up, use & check the iPAD SP1 AED. It also outlines some of the additional features & functionality, including data storage & download.

This is not meant as a replacement for hands-on training. Your local Ambulance Service may be able to offer additional support & guidance.

“Time should not be wasted if trained staff are not immediately available .Untrained people have used the devices to save a life and lack of training (or recent refresher training) should not be a barrier. Provided someone is prepared to use an AED” (UK Resuscitation Council & British Heart Foundation, 2013)

Remember, the iPAD SP1 AED:

– Is designed to be simple to use by minimally trained people
– Is very effective at guiding the operator step by step
– Is very safe and easy to use – you can do no harm
– Will not allow a shock to be given to someone who does not require one
