CPR & AED (defibrillator training) half-day course
No longer just for doctors, paramedics and nurses – advances in technology now make it possible for rescuers with very limited training to provide defibrillation following sudden cardiac arrest. Each minute it takes to reach a cardiac arrest victim with a defibrillator, reduces their chances of survival by 10%. In ten minutes the chances of restarting the heart reduces from 85% to almost none. This equipment is now available to every workplace at an affordable cost. (We can also provide details of suppliers and costs). With training direct from paramedics who have unrivalled experience in advanced cardiac support, your staff can learn the vital technique of defibrillation in only one day. At Medi-Tec, we operate a comprehensive AED training scheme. The scheme follows the latest Resuscitation Council (UK) recommendations. The initial certificate is valid for 6 months, after which students should attend a half-day refresher course. On successful outcome of the refresher assessment, the certificate is valid for a further 6 months.
