Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart suddenly stops pumping blood around the body. A person who suffers a cardiac arrest will be unresponsive and will lose consciousness almost immediately – every minute without Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) significantly reduces their chance of survival.
A Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) is a very safe and easy to use electronic device, designed to be used by a layperson. It automatically reads the heart rhythm of someone who may have suffered a cardiac arrest and diagnoses if an electrical shock is required to restore a normal heart rhythm.
The iPAD SP1 is recommended for its ease of use, with clear audible instructions and specific features that are of real benefit in helping to save a life.
