Setting Up The Defibrillator:
The defibrillator will prompt you with verbal and visual instructions advising you of exactly what to do, this includes step-by-step instructions that will guide you through the steps to apply pads and when to do CPR.
These steps will usually begin by telling you to stay calm and call 000, then the AED will ask you to apply the two adhesive pads of the defibrillator to the chest of the patient. The pad placement is essential for the operation of the shock into the heart, we explain this by saying that the Pads are placed in the ‘Drivers Seat belt Position’. At FAAE, we stock a range of defibrillators and Industry defibrillator packs that are ready to use and easy to operate and come with a FREE instructional video for your team.
