Defibrillator Locations In Newport
Written on June 13, 2021
When someone is having a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, every single second really does count. Knowing the exact location of your nearest defibrillator (AED) can make all the difference between life and death.
It is very important the first thing to do is to call 999. The Ambulance Call Handler will ask a series of questions and should your patient require it, they will identify the nearest available defibrillator to your position and give you the access code details.
Most public access Defibrillators are very easy to use with voice guided instructions, meaning you can respond and provide immediate lifesaving treatment whilst waiting for the ambulance service to arrive.
When used within the first 3-5 minutes of a person suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest defibrillators scan dramatically increase a patient chance of survival from less than 5% to as much as 70%. Public Access Defibrillators are designed to be used by virtually anyone and no prior training is needed.
