Defibrillator now at the practice

Posted on 17th November 2021

We’re pleased to inform patients, and neighbours, that we now have a new fully automatic defibrillator in our practice on St Vincent Street.

Staff are trained in using it, although the reason we purchased this one, is because it takes the user through what action in required, so really, it can be used by anyone.

About half of all cardiac arrest victims that suddenly collapse, initially require defibrillation. For others, however, who may have non-shockable heart rhythms, the critical action is CPR and this machine can guide someone to administer CPR effectively. We hope it is never required, but take reassurance in knowing it is here if we need it
