Simon Francis, the founder and Managing Director of Trimbio, said: “After working with these devices for several years, I realised not only how important they are, but also that there is a shortage of them in public places.”
1. The cardiac arrest is recognised immediately.
2. 999 is called.
3. CPR is performed by bystanders with the use of a Public Access Defibrillator.
Simon continued: “Public Access Defibrillators are extremely safe to use these days, they talk you though the whole process, including automatically analysing the patients heart rate prior to shocking and will not allow a shock to be delivered if it is not required.
“It is great to be able to give something to our local community that could one day save a life.”
