Football QLD Clubs, can save more lives!

There is a common misconception that Sudden Cardiac Arrest only happens to older or unhealthy people.  The sad truth is that Sudden Cardiac Arrest doesn’t discriminate and it can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

FAAE are here to support the Football Queensland community and to help save lives.  Clubs across the state have used our defibrillators to save lives.

15-year-old suffered sudden cardiac arrest at a Brisbane Soccer Club.

During a training session at a Brisbane Soccer Club, a coach recognised a young 15 year old had collapsed and stopped breathing.  It all happened so quickly, with club members jumping into action calling emergency services and starting CPR.  The club president accessed our defibrillator and attached it to the young man’s chest. After 3 shocks, the young man started breathing and was rushed to hospital. Thanks to the quick thinking of the club members, basic CPR training and access to our defibrillator, the young man survived a sudden cardiac arrest.

Frequently asked questions

We have tried to answer all of your commonly asked questions about Defibrillators in the FAQ below however, you can find more information in our FAQ section.  However, if you can’t find the information you’re looking for, please give us a call on 07 5520 5068 or email sales@firstaidae.com.au

An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It is a sophisticated, portable, easy to use medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electronic shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective heart rhythm.

Football Queensland have partnered with First Aid Accident & Emergency to assist with providing clubs early access to a defibrillator.  Our goal is to have a defibrillator within 3 minutes of every player, member, referee and club member whenever they are attending training or game day at a Football Queensland member venue.  The first 3 minutes are critical in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.

There is no specific or formal maintenance required on the LifePak CR2 Essential however, it is recommended that the AED is visually checked regularly to ensure that the AED’s readiness light is flashing.

The Battery and Electrodes generally require replacing after 3-4 years depending on the expiry date and the model of your defibrillator*.  We recommend also replacing these after a rescue to ensure your defibrillator is always kept in good working order.

The HeartSine Defibrillator Adult Battery PadPak costs around $200.00 and the Paediatric PadPak costs around $260.00.  These are suitable for use in the 350P, 360P and 500P HeartSine models.  The LifePak CR2 Defibrillator battery costs around $292.50 and electrodes cost around $115.00.  Replacement PadPaks, batteries and electrodes can be purchased via our Defibrillator Shop here

*The battery and electrodes should be replaced according to the manufacturers recommendations

The warranty period for the HeartSine 350P, 360P and 500P, and LifePak CR2 Defibrillators are 8 years from the date of purchase.

First Aid Accident & Emergency can provide mobile defibrillator bundles in the event you need to have a portable defibrillator for your club.  Our mobile defibrillator bundles include a IP67 rated Waterproof Tough Carry which houses everything you need on the go including the defibrillator, patient prep pack and monthly defibrillator check list.  Please contact the First Aid Accident & Emergency team on 07 5520 5068 if you need advice.

While we recommend everyone is trained in CPR, public access defibrillators are designed for anyone to use.  Once you switch the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) on, it will tell you exactly what to do via verbal and visual prompts.

This will usually begin with the defibrillator prompting you to call for help and expose the patient’s chest.  It will then instruct you to apply the adhesive pads to the chest of the patient. You’ll then be prompted to ‘not touch the patient’ as the AED is analysing the heart rhythm of the patient and may deliver a shock.

Once this has happened the AED will instruct you to perform CPR. Our defibrillators will guide you through this stage of the resuscitation to help ensure you are performing the CPR correctly and at the right pace.

If you have purchased a defibrillator from First Aid Accident & Emergency, we will also provide you with an online instructional use video.  We recommend you watch this along with anyone else who may need to use the device.

Absolutely!  Please get in touch with the First Aid Accident & Emergency team on phone 07 5520 5068 or email sales@firstaidae.com.au and we an assist with your Defibrillator Bundle purchase.  Alternatively, please visit our Defibrillator Shop.
