The use of defibrillators is recognised as highly beneficial in helping those who have suffered cardiac arrest, and it is estimated that 90-95% of cardiac arrests are fatal unless someone acts quickly. Think CPR, then raise the alarm and then think "where is the nearest defibrillator?" Research has shown that every minute without defibrillation reduces the chance of someone surviving an arrest by 10%.

Whilst our first aiders are all trained in the use of defibrillators, there is no need for specific training: anyone can use a defibrillator and there is no risk of hurting someone should a defibrillator need to be used by someone who has not been trained.

Please watch Ben's Story to see how effective a defibrillator can be, even in the hands of a relative novice.

There are a number of defibrillators at the University and the details of their location is available below.

The Health and Safety Department manage the University's defibrillators, with the helps of the first aiders, so if you have any questions please contact health and safety training mailbox
