Supplying The UK With The Best British Defibrillators On The Market Since 2008



General News

Business Parks have also reached out to other businesses surrounding them to share recently installed HeartSafe® cabinets and defibrillators. Redhill Farm Business Park, North Bristol is one such location. The owners and managers of the site, the caring Ford family installed a HeartSafe® public access defibrillator with HeartSine 500P in their extensive commercial premises, formerly part of Redhill Farm. An onsite training programme in the use of a defibrillator and CPR was also undertaken adhering to social distance guidelines.  In Bishop Sutton, near the Mendip Hills south of Bristol, 2 further HeartSafe® cabinets are to be installed before Christmas as part of the Westway Farm development which will be offering rural offices to the residents of the Chew Valley.

Despite the difficulties the pandemic has inflicted on our lives throughout the UK, many communities have continued to place HeartSafe® cabinets and defibrillators strategically amongst their neighbourhoods. This will ensure rapid help can be at hand for local people to obtain a defibrillator through their public access defibrillator site.  
The Island of Guernsey is a prime example of how an active group of volunteers have made Guernsey HeartSafe® with over 30 cabinets installed, protecting the Island. If you need inspiration in these difficult times and wish to help your fellow friends/neighbours, take a look at how the Cardiac Action Group have safeguarded the lives of the people of Guernsey and visitors.

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 the 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 are the features of an AED?

Purchasing a defibrillator can be confusing, as the technical ability and performance of the defibrillator may be only understood by trained personnel and sales persons! When in doubt, before 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
