General public knowledge of defibrillators has often been gained from watching Hollywood films and TV shows. This media representation has not really provided people with the correct information about how to use defibrillators and the importance of having them in public places. There is a fear that providing treatment could result in hurting a patient or injuring themselves. This is not true!

When a person has a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) it is important to be quick. Every minute count. Immediate CPR and defibrillation increases the chance of survival by 74%.

  • A Defibrillator is easy to use. To use a defibrillator all you to do is open the lid, attach the pre-connected electrodes to the patient to the positions clearly marked on the pads, and let the Lifepak begin analysing the patient.
  • The defibrillator will administer shocks to restore the natural rhythm of the heart.

There are not at the moment any Australian laws that require a workplace to have a defibrillator. however there is an increasing need for businesses to protect their staff and customers while they are on site.

Providing adequate health and safety provisions is essential to help organisations save lives and ensure that duty of care levels are achieved. It has been proved that having an access to a defibrillator can save a persons life if they have a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital.
