Defibrillator used on our student in first aid course
There’s nothing like a real life scenario to test out your first aid skills – our students and qualified First Aid Trainer got exactly that on Thursday 29th October 2016, during a standard First Aid and CPR Training Course at First Aid Accident and Emergency’s Varsity Lakes headquarters.
Forty-six year old sailing club volunteer- Peter Cary was one of the 20 attendees of the FAAE First Aid course, when he suddenly started displaying some typical symptoms of a heart attack. Ironically, this happened during a role-play session in the first aid course where students were practicing their newly acquired First Aid skills on each other.
Quick thinking and access to a workplace defibrillator, saved Peter’s life – This is his story
