LOCAL DEFIBRILLATORS

AJ defib pictureDO YOU KNOW WHERE THE NEAREST DEFIBRILLATOR IS TO WHERE YOU LIVE, WORK OR SPEND YOUR LEISURE TIME?

In our reception we now have a potentially life-saving, fully automatic defibrillator – it’s there for our patients and staff obviously but is also available to the wider community.

If someone has collapsed and isn’t breathing, an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) will check the person’s heart rhythm and will send a shock to the heart, if appropriate, to try and restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest – when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. Outside a hospital setting, on average, less than 10% of victims survive a cardiac arrest. With defibrillation survival rates can go up to about 40%, and if suitable patients are shocked within 2 minutes the survival rate can be as good as 70%.

An AED won’t deliver a shock if it’s not appropriate, so you won’t cause harm through inappropriate use. The unit is fully automatic – you open the lid and it tells you exactly what to do…..Remember – a person who is unconscious and not breathing is already dead, to all intents and purposes, so there is nothing you can do that is going to make their situation worse, but without help there is no way they are going to survive – so please try something!!

BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE, IF SOMEONE HAS COLLAPSED AND ISN’T BREATHING – CALL 999

There are loads of AED’s dotted around Stamford, those we are aware of are listed below and we will add to the list as we discover more!   The East Midlands Ambulance Service will help you to locate the nearest defibrillator when you call 999, but it’s even better if someone is already en route to fetch a defibrillator whilst the 999 call is being made!  The postcodes might help you find them.

Those marked Public Access are housed in boxes on the external walls of buildings and are accessible 24/7.  You will need a security code to obtain access to the defibrillator and this will be given to you by the 999 operator.  All the others are limited access depending on the opening hours of the business where the AED is kept.  Therefore, where possible, the phone numbers of these locations are listed below so you can try to call in advance and may avoid a wasted journey.

This list is a work in progress and will be kept as complete, accurate and up to date as possible……Please contact us if you are aware of any errors or omissions. Thank you.
