A defibrillator is a device that uses electricity to restart the heart or shock it back into a normal rhythm.

Defibrillators can be used on people who need CPR, such as someone who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.

If you think someone is having a cardiac arrest, call triple 000, begin CPR, and use an AED as soon as possible.

As minutes are the difference between life and death, knowing where one is located in your local area is vital.

Dr Bendall emphasised in his presentation the importance of keeping a person alive until further assistance arrives.

“Some assistance is better than none,” said Dr Bendall.

“There’s a 60 to 70 percent chance of survival and a 90 percent chance of survival at large venues for action to be taken quickly.”

AEDs are usually found in public spaces and can be used by anyone.

They tell you exactly what to do through step by step instructions so it doesn’t matter if you don’t have medical training.

If in doubt ring 000 and an operator will instruct you on what to do.
