This course teaches the essential skills required by an AED operator and gives students the confidence to know how to deal with a cardiac arrest emergency. No previous first aid knowledge is necessary to attend an AED course. At AMBA Training We passionately believe in improving AED access because it has been proven to save lives, In the UK, one person suffers a heart attack every two minutes but the majority could be saved if their heart was shocked back into rhythm. That accounts to approximately 30,000 people sustaining cardiac arrest outside hospital whom are treated by emergency medical services (EMS) each year In the UK. Recent studies have shown that electrical defibrillation is well established as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation (VF) or pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT). The scientific evidence to support early defibrillation is overwhelming; the delay from collapse to delivery of the first shock is the single most important determinant of survival. If defibrillation is delivered promptly, survival rates as high as 75% have been reported. The chances of successful defibrillation decline at a rate of about 10% with each minute of delay; basic life support will help to maintain a shock-able rhythm but is not a definitive treatment. You will be trained on how to use automated external defibrillators (AEDs), this course specially designed for public sector staff, first responders and healthcare professionals responding with an AED outside a hospital. An AED can be used safely and effectively without previous training. However, training should be encouraged to help improve the time to shock. More and more shopping centres, sports grounds, office buildings and hotels have AEDs onsite. Therefore it is in our interests to ensure all your staff, particularly first aiders is trained. Sufficient staff should be trained to enable a first shock to be provided within 3 minutes of collapse anywhere in a hospital. Hospitals should also monitor collapse-to-first-shock intervals and monitor resuscitation outcomes. The RC(UK) advises that untrained employees working in establishments should not be prevented from using an AED if they are confronted with a patient in cardiac arrest. The administration of a defibrillator shock should not be delayed while waiting for more highly trained personnel to arrive. The same principle should apply to individuals whose certified period of qualification has expired. While it is highly desirable that those who may be called upon to use an AED should be trained in their use, and keep their skills up to date, circumstances can dictate that no trained operator (or a trained operator whose certificate of training has expired) is present at the site of an emergency. Under these circumstances no inhibitions should be placed on any person willing to use an AED.
All AEDs analyse the victim’s ECG rhythm and determine the need for a shock. The semi-automatic AED indicates the need for a shock, which is delivered by the operator, while the fully automatic AED administers the shock without the need for intervention by the operator. Some semi-automatic AEDs have the facility to enable the operator (normally a healthcare professional) to override the device and deliver a shock manually, independently of prompts.

For any Individual who may feel that by enrolling on a this course will help them develop the skills to help preserve life.
• When AEDs are installed in public places and used by people working nearby. Impressive results have been reported with survival rates as high as 74% with fast response times often possible when an AED is nearby.
