Defibrillator used in School
Karen made and emergency visit to us today to replace defibrillator pads and Battery on a HeartSine 360p AED. It was used at her school here on the Gold Coast to successfully resuscitate a parent at a school assembly. She said the first aid training they all received, as well as having a defibrillator on hand was the reason the patient survived.
We cant stress how important it is to have the right training and a defibrillator on hand at your school or workplace, to have any chance of success. We would like to say a big congratulations to the team at Karen’s school for their success in this resuscitation, and wish everyone involved a Merry Christmas.

Australia’s only RTO to successfully resuscitate a student in a CPR class!
Nothing like a real Heart Attack to test your skills! Our students and trainer were put to the test on Thursday 29th October 2016, making history to become the only First Aid RTO in Australia to successfully use a defibrillator on a student in a CPR course!
Forty-six year old sailing club volunteer Peter Cary was one of the 20 attendees of the FAAE First Aid course when suddenly he started displaying some typical symptoms of a heart attack. Ironically, this happened during a role-play session in the CPR Course where students were practicing their newly acquired First Aid skills on each other. Our qualified First Aid trainer Wendy Sullivan initially thought Mr Cary was merely getting into character until the symptoms started to get more reactive and it became apparent that the class had a real situation on their hands that required immediate medical attention. Wendy immediately stepped up, using all of her First Aid training skills, and went through the steps of checking Mr Cary’s breathing and response. At this stage Mr Cary was completely unresponsive and in full cardiac arrest.
Wendy began CPR and instructed the students to notify the administration team to call 000. Another student was sent to retrieve a defibrillator, which was then administered by the partially trained students while Wendy continued with the CPR.
The Defibrillator shocked Peter 3 times in the first aid course!
The team worked together for a total of 8 minutes administering CPR and delivering 3 shocks to Peters heart, reviving him. he was monitored until the ambulance arrived. Peter Cary was admitted to Allamanda Hospital on the Gold Coast where he is making a full recovery. First Aid Accident and Emergency director, Scott Whimpey, has praised his trainers, team and students for the happy turn of events.

The Mayor Tom Tate had his first catch up on Monday with his personal CPR instructor Scott Whimpey, from First Aid Accident & Emergency. Scott and the Mayor met at the council chambers to de-brief after the Mayor’s wife, Ruth Tate, collapsed and had to be resuscitated two weeks ago in a Singapore Airport. The Mayor commended Scott, who personally trained him in first aid and CPR skills earlier in the year.
Mr Mayor said Scott acted out a role play scenario of a heart attack and the practical training session he received was the key to his acting quickly and identifying that his wife needed CPR. The CPR and use of a defibrillator on a patient were all in the training session. Scott and the Mayor also discussed future training for his office and using technology to identify defibrillator locations on the Gold Coast; this critical situation with his wife has now made the Mayor realise the importance of family, first aid training and defibrillators for the people of the Gold Coast, and is asking all workplaces to consider training for team members.
