The Edgmond Defibrillator
Written on March 15, 2021
The Edgmond Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is situated in a cabinet on an external wall of the Village Hall.
It is for use by anyone. The machine will tell you what to do – you cannot hurt anyone.
If you think you need it in an emergency just follow the following steps:
First call 999 and if you can, continue basic first aid on the patient.
Send someone with a mobile phone to the village hall. When at the AED cabinet, ring 999, ask for the ambulance service and quote the number on the AED cabinet. The ambulance control will give you the code to open the cabinet if they consider use of the AED is suitable.
Take the AED to the patient and just follow the instructions.
TO DO SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
YOU CANNOT MAKE THE PATIENT’S CONDITION WORSE – YOU MAY SAVE THEIR LIFE.
