HeartSafe Frequently Asked Questions

If your community does not have quick and easy access to a defibrillator, a life could be lost unnecessarily. Don’t delay, follow the HeartSafe® initiative and protect your family and friends.

What is a sudden Cardiac Arrest?

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of premature death, but with immediate treatment many lives can be saved. SCA occurs because the electrical rhythm that controls the heart is replaced by a chaotic disorganised electrical rhythm called ventricular fibrillation (VF). The quicker VF can be treated by defibrillation the greater the chance of successful resuscitation. Seconds count and the ambulance service is unlikely to arrive quickly enough to resuscitate most victims.

When does a sudden Cardiac Arrest strike?

Sudden cardiac arrest can occur at any time to anyone, of any age. It can occur suddenly, without warning. Research shows that SCAs outside of hospitals are most likely to occur in your home between midnight at 7 am. It is unpredictable. Following SCA the patient’s survival rate drops by 10% every minute without treatment to maintain blood circulation. In the UK, less than 5% of victims survive out of the hospital. Together with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillation is the only way to re-establish the heart’s natural rhythm. This can only be done by early use of an AED and effective quality CPR.

There is a correlation that the likelihood of SCA increases with extreme weather temperature changes. Statistical evidence proves that in cold weather there is more likelihood of SCA occurring. All sports including contact sports may place people at a higher risk of SCA.

What are the facts about Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the single most significant cause of death – around 100,000 deaths per year are as a result of SCA. It is estimated 60,000 occur out of hospital. Less than 5% of sufferers survive a cardiac arrest. With the early use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and effective CPR, the survival rate can increase to 50%. There is a likelihood that cardiac arrests will occur within the population of one of our business/projects whilst workmen, professionals or visitors are on the premises/site.

Many SCA victims can be saved if persons nearby recognise what has happened, summon the ambulance service with the minimum of delay, perform basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (particularly chest compressions) and use an AED to provide a high energy electric shock to restore the heart’s normal rhythm. Each of these stages is a link in a chain of events that provide the best chance of success, but the critical factor is the speed with which the shock is given.

What is an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)?

An AED is easy to use, compact, portable and very effective. They are designed to be used by laypersons; the device guides the operator through the process by verbal instructions and visual prompts. They are safe and will not allow a shock to be given unless the heart’s rhythm requires it. They are designed to be stored for long periods without use and require very little routine maintenance. Several models are available from the manufacturers or through medical equipment companies.

What are the features of an AED?

Defibrillators are manufactured in various countries around the world. It is important before a purchase is made that the defibrillator you choose conforms to the MDR Regulations. In May 2020 the MDR Regulations were due to take place however due to Covid-19 this has been postponed by 12 months. Always check with your supplier that your defibrillator is fit for the purpose for the period of warranty. Like with any medical product, there can be recalls and model changes.

Defibrillators have different features and warranty periods vary between 5-10 years. Be aware of the ongoing consumable costs which include the replacement of electro-pads and batteries. Be aware of any monitoring/maintenance requirements. Some defibrillators are able to record events, which can vary from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. Be aware of the expiry date of consumables. Electro-pads and batteries may expire at different dates between 2-5 years.

 

HeartSafe® AED Locator after research has chosen to recommend a British manufactured defibrillator, the HeartSine range. The 3 models 500P, 350P and 360P offer differing operational features but all have a 10-year warranty, exceptional low cost of operating with a free consumable offer for the 10 years of warranty along with a simple monitoring/maintenance program. A recent additional feature of the HeartSine range is remote Gateway wifi monitoring. This can be retrofitted or purchased when new. Click here for information on the Gateway.

Above all, it is having confidence in the defibrillator you choose. It will need to help you with the minimum of fuss and assist in the chain of survival when CPR is administered.

 

The early use of a defibrillator with effective quality CPR within a few minutes of a victim suffering a SCA can increase the odds of survival of the patient. Without the use of a defibrillator and CPR, the patient’s chances of survival are less than 5%. The use of a defibrillator and quality CPR within 3-4 minutes of the arrest occurring can increase the odds of success to 50-70%.

Purchasing a defibrillator can be confusing, as the technical ability and performance of the defibrillator may be only understood by trained personnel and salespersons! When in doubt, before the money is spent, we recommend you discuss with us your specific requirements of where your defibrillator is to be positioned and who it is likely to be used by. We will be happy to give you our advice before you commit to any purchase. Contact Us

How does an AED work?

A defibrillator, whether it is semi or fully automatic is designed to quickly deliver a defibrillation shock to victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Once the electro pads are placed on the victim’s chest, the defibrillator analyses the patient, looking for a shockable arrhythmia (bad heart rhythm). The defibrillator cannot be used incorrectly as it will only deliver a shock to the patient if it detects it is necessary. The electrical shock when administered is to re-establish normal heart rhythm. This treatment is called “defibrillation”. The use of an AED is part of the chain of survival.

Who can use an AED?

AEDs have been installed in many busy public places, workplaces, sports centres, schools and communities. Any location where the Emergency Services may be delayed, particularly remote country areas are the locations to be considered. The intention is to have quick access to the defibrillator and use the device to restart the heart as soon as possible. This strategy of placing AEDs in locations where they are used by laypersons near the arrest is known as public access defibrillation (PAD). HeartSafe® AED Locator is proud of its heritage over the last 12 years. It was the first organisation to place AEDs in public locations, supported by the Ambulance Trust. A pilot scheme in the Chew Valley area, west of Bristol Airport positioned 15 AEDs in purpose-built, designed secure cabinets. Awareness training was given to 15 Villages supported by Great Western Ambulance Service (now SWAST).  To date, many thousands of cabinets have been located throughout the UK. The use of an AED is an extension of the first aid skills possessed by first aid personnel and other appointed persons.

 

However, HeartSafe’s continual efforts in making the use of defibrillators public to all have successfully allowed untrained persons who lack any medical skills to use the defibrillator in an emergency. It is for this reason that the HeartSine range of defibrillators has been chosen as it helps to ensure the layperson is guided through the CPR process and is encouraged to perform chest compressions of high quality. The device will provide you with spontaneous verbal feedback. The device has a 90-minute memory recording of the event and where multiple samaritans assist in giving CPR, each person is brought up to a quality level of CPR when following the feedback the device gives. HeartSafe® AED Locator encourages anyone to have a go and use a public access defibrillator when a person has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. When the victim shows that they are unresponsive/not breathing, an SCA may have occurred and the chain of survival should be followed. 

  • Call 999
  • Start CPR
  • Switch on defibrillator
  • Follow its instructions 

What is the "Chain of Survival" and what are the four links of the “Chain of Survival”?

The Chain of Survival is the series of actions necessary to help save the life of someone who has had a cardiac arrest. The four actions in the Chain are early recognition of the problem and calling 999; early CPR; early defibrillation; and effective post-resuscitation care. All four parts of the Chain are crucial in helping to save the life of a victim. See link to Chain of Survival (British Heart Foundation) for more information click here.

Chain of Survival - Heartsafe

Legal Requirements

In the United Kingdom, there are very few legal barriers to public access defibrillators. A rescuer who has acted appropriately to help a victim of SCA should not be sued regardless of the outcome. Defibrillators are manufactured for public use. It is of course helpful if the person using the AED has knowledge of the chain of survival. However, the defibrillator is made for people with little or no training as well as trained personnel. When the device is switched on it will give verbal instructions for use. The HeartSine samaritan® PAD 500P speaks more and gives accurate feedback to rescuers on the effectiveness of the CPR they are providing to the victim. Recent successful “lives saved” using the 500P have even reported where 5 rescuers (Policemen) took in turn over 26 minutes before the paramedics were able to arrive, provided quality CPR ensuring the brain was not starved of oxygen due to the effectiveness of the feedback given by the device. The rescuers continued to push much harder and much faster than they thought possible. This led to a full recovery of the victim. This is just one of many cases where the feedback to the rescuers made all the difference to the survival of the victim.

HeartSafe Communities

Without immediate defibrillation and CPR when cardiac arrest occurs, the chances of survival are less than 5%. With a defibrillator being used on a patient the odds of survival can be increased to 50%.

Join The Community!

A HeartSafe® community is established when a group of people decide that they wish to reduce the odds of dying or not recovering fully from a cardiac arrest by installing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in a public place thereby giving 24-hour access to this life-saving equipment.

AED Locator promotes the placement of AEDs outdoors, in public places. PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) provide 24-hour access so that emergency life-saving equipment is available to everyone whenever it is needed. AEDs are housed in secure, weatherproof, heated cabinets on the exterior walls of buildings such as Post Offices, village halls, schools, Inns, sports centres etc. and other visible locations in the community. 

Give your Cabinet Maximum Visibility!

An overhanging sign might be appropriate above the cabinet to increase its visibility. Signage could be placed around the locality identifying the location of the AED, for example, posters in shop windows with directions to the cabinet.The Department of Health and the NHS support the Restart the Heart campaign and AED placements in the community.

Mapping of your AED – we can upload your community’s AED to this website so that all AEDs are visible, monitored and can be tracked by anyone travelling or simply need to know where their nearest life-saving AED is located. This means that life-saving equipment will be available to the public each minute of every hour of each day of the year.

  • Unusual sites (i.e. telephone box, Coastguard Lookout)

Villages and Rural Locations

  • Despite every effort and endeavour by ambulance paramedics, some emergency calls can take more than 10 minutes to arrive at an incident.
  • Rural communities and Villages are at greater risk when cardiac arrest occurs. Every effort is made to arrive at an incident within the Government recommended timescales of 8 minutes. When a cardiac arrest occurs every minute without the use of an AED can reduce chance of survival by 10%. When 10 minutes approaches, only effective CPR may prolong the chance of survival of the patient.
  • When a cardiac arrest occurs out of hospital the most likely place for it to happen is at home between midnight and 7am. The bedroom or bathroom is the likely place it occurs. Lay people are likely to obtain the AED and use it. The AED will only shock a patient if a shockable arrhythmia is detected. This may be approximately 50% of the time. If no arrhythmia is found, you must carry out CPR, to manually pump the patient’s heart until professional help arrives.
  • The quality of CPR generally is very poor. 70% of people who give it, including trained personnel, do so ineffectively, see link to Resuscitation Council link here.
  • Do not depend on someone’s memory of how CPR is performed having watched Casualty or the Vinnie Jones CPR Heart Advert, ensure you have the right type of defibrillator that gives you feedback as to the quality of CPR you are administering. In our view, the HeartSine Samaritan® PAD 500P is the best choice of defibrillator due to its unique patented impedance cardiogram.

Contact us to discuss your individual requirements – ensure you make the right decision. We are confident HeartSafe® will be the choice you make. Advanced technology with use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and good CPR can save a life.

Statement from: The Resuscitation Council (UK)

“It is the view of the Resuscitation Council (UK) that the use of AEDs should not be restricted to trained personnel. Furthermore, the Resuscitation Council (UK) considers that it is inappropriate to display notices to the effect that only trained personnel should use the devices, or to restrict their use in other ways. Such restrictions are against the interests of victims of cardiac arrest and discourage the greater use of AEDs by members of the public who may be able to preserve life and assist victims of cardiac arrest.” Click here to find out more.

Do not be satisfied in using any defibrillator. If you have a choice, and you are intending to invest for your community, research the benefits of an AED that provides live CPR feedback – see our recommended HeartSafe® package.

Rural communities are now taking steps to help provide another layer of “insurance” to increase the odds of survival. A small investment in ensuring your village and community becomes HeartSafe® may prevent an unnecessary life being lost.

Not a day passes when national newspapers or television channels report on a newsworthy named person having died unexpectedly from sudden cardiac arrest.

Not a day passes when national newspapers or television channels report on a newsworthy named person having died unexpectedly from sudden cardiac arrest.

However, consider an ordinary person who dies of a cardiac arrest at work, Policeman, Postman, office worker, builder, teacher, the list is endless. A Google search will always retrieve a sad incident of a person dying unexpectedly in any job or profession.

These headlines can only be surpassed when a notable person recovers from a cardiac arrest having had the good fortune of immediate help from “samaritans” who by chance happen to be close by. They were able to provide good CPR whilst the Emergency Services were en-route to the incident and by even more good fortune, a nearby AED was available and used on the patient which enabled the heart to restart in normal rhythm.

Causes of a SCA

The size of your business and place of work may vary and it is true to say the more people there are, the more chance a person may suffer an SCA. 

The location where people are employed can increase the chances of an SCA, such places include:-

  • very stressful public areas such as airports, train stations, shopping malls etc
  • Working outside in cold weather can influence the possibility of SCA such as building sites, agricultural industry etc

Recent famous Sports personalities and celebrities that have suffered and survived an SCA include:

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

Who is at risk for SCA?

SCA often occurs in active people who seem to be healthy and have no known medical conditions. In these patients, SCA is the first indication of a heart condition. However, some people can be identified in advance as being at risk for SCA. Risk factors include:-

  • Previous heart attack
  • Coronary artery disease (and risk factors for CAD including smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, elevated LDL cholesterol, family history of heart disease, sedentary lifestyle)
  • Heart failure from other causes
  • Abnormal heart rate or rhythm (arrhythmia) of unknown cause
  • Episodes of fainting of unknown cause
  • Low ejection fraction (EF) (<35%)

Sadly, famous people who died of cardiac arrest include:-

Michael Jackson

James Stuart

Christopher Reeve

Mother Teresa

Tony Curtis

Brittany Murphy

Making Changes

The policies adopted by the Ambulance Trusts in the UK regarding public access defibrillators may vary in each of the regions and the policies may change and vary. Most Ambulance Trusts have a 200-metre radius of the location of the public access defibrillator being highlighted when an emergency call to the Ambulance Service has been made reporting an incident of a sudden cardiac arrest. However, the distance may vary depending on the Trust. It has been reported a Trust has a 500-metre radius and other Trusts may have a different distance in rural locations. 

We wish to point out that we cannot be held responsible for providing this information where changes of distance and procedures of the Ambulance Trusts providing assistance when offering PAD locations may vary. 

External Defibrillator

We always endeavour to provide information which is accurate. We would suggest that you make contact with your local Ambulance Trust and inform them of your intention to place a PAD in your community. Many thousands of sites have been created with the help of HeartSafe® / AED Locator. You may wish to refer to the installations that HeartSafe® have made to assist in understanding your project.

Chain of Survival... something we all should know

  1. Early access to care – dial 999 immediately! 
  2. Early Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) – to help maintain blood flow to the brain until the arrival of defibrillation.
  3. Early defibrillation – is the only way to restart a heart in cardiac arrest.
  4. Early advanced care – after defibrillation, an emergency team provides advanced cardiac care on scene, such as intravenous medications.

About HeartSine 500P

Regardless of whether it is a layperson or a professional rescuer, AHA/ERC Guidelines place a greater emphasis on the importance of effective CPR in increasing survival rates after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

HeartSine® samaritan® PAD 500P defibrillator with CPR Advisor is the most innovative device available to support these guidelines, giving rescuers feedback on the effectiveness of their CPR efforts – in real time.

Diagram to show how hard to push during CPR

Visual indicators let the user know if effective CPR is being administered. Voice prompts let the user know if chest compressions are being given correctly. Aural “clicks” help the user keep time.

How It Works

The 500P defibrillator provides the rescuer with real-time instructions regarding compressions with audible “Good Compressions” or “Push Harder,” “Push Faster” and “Push Slower.” These instructions also are displayed on the face of the device in order to ensure the rescuer performs the most effective CPR.

CPR, Cardio (heart) Pulmonary (lung) Resuscitation, combines compressing the heart to circulate blood to all the vital organs and, at the same time, breathing into the victim to supply oxygen.

Impedance Cardiogram (ICG) analysis is embedded in the software, which guides the user in the required force and speed of compressions for the victim. The ICG measures impedance changes in the chest cavity, which helps determine effective CPR. Because the ICG is related to how fast the compressions are applied, as well as how hard, the 500P can guide the user on both rate and depth.

After being instructed to “Begin CPR,” an audible beep for the appropriate cadence will help the rescuer keep time when performing compressions. The objective during CPR using the 500P is to hear “Good Compressions” and to see green on the CPR indicator.
