AED Training (Automated External Defibrillator)
AED Training teaches the delegate how to use an Automated External Defibrillator machine. An AED is an automatic diagnosis for a life threatening heart attack and is a common alternative to CPR. The AED uses the application of therapy through electrical pulses to help the casualty retain a regular heart rhythm.
The course is made for delegates who do not hold an official first aid qualification. This is due to other courses already covering the relevant information.
The AED defibrillator training focuses to teach attendees how to safely use an AED machine and basic life support. AED Courses usually last for half a day; the delegates will gain a working knowledge of the following through classroom and hands on practice:
- How CPR works.
- Keeping the casualty and the rescuer safe.
- How the AED works and when to deliver the first shock.
- Basic procedures during the process.
- Dealing with an unconscious casualty.
- Recognising irregular breathing.
- Recognising heart rhythms.
- Recording information and reporting the accident.
- Emergency services hand over.
- How to pass your final assessment.
For delegates who want to learn more about this and other first aid training we would recommend they attend the First Aid at Work training course. Delegates can pass any information learned onto adults and children. It is important for others to have this information even if they are not qualified by Highfield.
