Have you ever thought about becoming a Round Table member?
Tettenhall Round Table are always on the look out for new and innovative members. Their mission is to develop and promote fellowship between young professional and businessmen whilst also promoting and developing charitable fund raising activities and community service projects.
Recently CRYALEX sited a defibrillator in partnership with AEDdonate at Penn Models in Wolverhampton. This site was subsequently vandalised and the defibrillator stolen. Tettenhall Round Table stepped up and very kindly made a donation to get the site back up and running again with a new defibrillator.
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time and following the four steps in the chain of survival can help to increase the patients chances of survival;
Early Advanced Life Support
Defibrillators are easy to use and come with either verbal or visual step by step instructions. The machines are designed to be used by anyone with or without prior training. Anyone needing a defibrillator should call 999 in the first instance and the call handler will advise where the nearest one is and how to access it. If effective CPR and a defibrillator can be applied within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse the chances of survival for the victim can increase from 6%-74%. Without immediate treatment, 90%-95% of patients will die.
We are extremely grateful to Tettenhall Round Table for their contribution together with substantial donations from both the community and Dudley Council, which will keep the people in the area of Kingswinsford safe in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest.
