AED - Automated External Defibrillation

Over 150,000 people die each year in the UK from cardiac arrest.

Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have become the most innovative life saving technology in many years. Defibrillating the heart is now recognised as the critical action that can restart a heart and increase a casualty's chance of survival.

ARC Training has designed this Course to enable the candidate to develop the skill to use a defibrillator within a specific protocol.

Development of technology has produced equipment which is user friendly, providing the operator with verbal prompts and minimum operator input.

This Course is aimed at candidates who are engaged in the care and welfare of babies and children. It is essential that first aiders have a knowledge of the modifications to adult first aid which are necessary when treating children and babies. One major consideration when treating injured or sick children is their general inability to communicate effectively.

Candidates are instructed in a range of first aid techniques specifically aimed at treatment of babies and children utilising infant (0-1 years) and junior (1+)

manikins to ensure realism and best practice.
