Defibrillator Heart Restarter: For an unconscious person NOT breathing normally call 999, start CPR, switch on defibrillator, follow its instructions. The first 3 to 5 minutes following someone going into Cardiac Arrest are crucial. 999 should be called immediately to ensure that the ambulance is dispatched at which time the operator will inform the caller of any nearby defibrillator and the access code where required. Call 999 for a code to access defibrillators in locked cabinets. Anyone can use a defibrillator. No training is necessary.
Defibrillators can provide vital life-saving treatment, with latest research showing that accessing these devices within 3-5 minutes of a cardiac arrest increases the chance of survival by over 40%. Saltford Parish Council does not own and is not responsible for any defibrillators in Saltford. If you use a defibrillator the owners should be alerted to its use, but please contact them to make sure as defibrillators require attention following use.
Registering a defibrillator with The Circuit enables emergency services, including first responders, to locate the nearest publicly accessible external defibrillators (AEDs) when they are treating someone suffering from out of hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
If you own or manage a defibrillator in Saltford please register it to the National Defibrillator Network known as The Circuit at https://www.thecircuit.uk/. Registration is simple and quick to do. Many AEDs are not registered, meaning ambulance services cannot find them when they are needed most resulting in some defibrillators never being used because emergency services do not know how to access them. The Circuit connects defibrillators to NHS ambulance services across the UK so that in those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest they can be accessed quickly to help save lives.
