Community Defibrillators

How to use a defibrillator

Defibrillators are very easy to use. Although they don't all look the same, they all function in broadly the same way.

You don't need training to use one. The machine gives clear spoken instructions-all you have to do is follow them-and it won't shock someone unless they need it.

If you come across someone who is unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally, they are in cardiac arrest. The most important thing is to call 999 and start CPR to keep the blood flowing to the brain and around the body. After a cardiac arrest, every minute wihout CPR and defibrillation reduces someone's chance of survival by 10%.

If you're on your own, don't interrupt the CPR to go and get a defibrillator. If it is possible, send someone else to find one. When you call 999, the operator can tell you if there's a public access defibrillator nearby.

Further information can be found on the British Heart Foundation website bhf.org.uk
