Seaview Gorran Haven now has a defibrillator on site.
The defibrillator was kindly funded and supported by Seaview owners, customers, team, and Southern Counties Leisure. The Tesco Bags of Help scheme also contributed to this campaign’s success.
The defibrillator is available 24/7 and can be accessed by calling 999. The caller will be advised of the location of the defibrillator and provided with the code to open the secure cabinet in which it is housed. The ambulance call assessor has the ability to talk to any caller, defibrillator trained or not, through instructions on how to use the device as well as CPR techniques. The defibrillator itself also provides voice guidance throughout, and visual guides are also present.
The chance of survival after Sudden Cardiac Arrest decreases minute by minute, but if someone is shocked with a defibrillator within 3 minutes, their chance of survival increases by 70 %.
AEDdonate covers the whole of the UK to raise awareness, knowledge, and confidence in the safe use of defibrillators and CPR as well as fitting them within local communities.
