Life-saving equipment is installed at a range of Burnley Council buildings in partnership with North West Ambulance Service (NWAS).
A defibrillator is a life-saving machine that gives the heart an electric shock in some cases of cardiac arrest. When trying to help SCA victim, every second counts. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces someone’s chances of survival by ten per cent. When used quickly, defibrillators can save lives.
The Lifepak Cr Plus defibrillators are simple and safe to use with easy-to-understand instructions. Anyone can use the equipment without any first aid training. The machine has voice prompts and informative visual displays. Once in position, it detects the heart’s rhythm and it won’t deliver a shock unless one is needed.
