The use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) within 3–5 min of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 70%.

For every minute that passes without effective CPR & defibrillation, there is a 10% drop in chances of survival.

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime and anywhere.   It is different from a heart attack, which is when blood flow to the heart is blocked. A sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating. When someone is having a cardiac arrest they would typically display no visible signs of life.

Defibrillation is the only known form of treatment for a cardiac arrest. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation.

The iPAD SP1 stands for Intelligent Public Access Defibrillator (SP1 model) and is designed for use by anyone in an emergency situation.  Training is not necessary as the  device provides clear visual and audible instructions and has a simple switch to enable it for use on an adult or child.

The iPAD SP1 is recommended and used by over 75% of NHS Ambulance Services and is a defibrillator of choice by the British Heart Foundation.

How does iPAD work for you?

  • null
    Adult / Paediatric Mode Switch

    The iPAD SP1 comes with dual use Adult / Paediatric electrode pads. There is a simple switch on the device which will allow you to change the energy output of the defibrillator. Having dual use pads decreases long term costs, as energy-reducing pads can be expensive.

  • Ambient Noise Detection

    It’s sometimes difficult to hear commands from a small device when the environment is busy, such a playground or corridor within a school. The iPAD SP1 comes with a noise detection system that pics up the background noise and adjusts its volume to ensure you hear it over the surrounding noises.

  • Easy to Use, Even by Children

    A defibrillator must be simple to use – so simple that even children should feel comfortable using one in the event of an emergency. The iPAD’s easy to follow audible commands, combined with visual instructions, assist in a smooth rescue for even the least trained of individuals.

What do people think?

These kits can mean the difference between life and death and are of vital importance, particularly in rural areas like ours that can be affected by ambulance and emergency response times.

This installation will make life safer for residents and visitors to our lovely village, although I am sure we all hope it will be seriously underused in the next few years.

GEOFF FAGANCE, COUNCIL CHAIRMAN

Five years ago, my 13-year-old cousin, James Haggerty who lived in Beckton-on-Sea, Suffolk, suffered a cardiac arrest and sadly died.
If there had been a defibrillator there, it would have greatly increased the chances of him surviving.
