Members of the local community have recently attended a training session at The Bowling Green Pub in Lichfield. The session covered what to do in a life-threatening emergency, how to do CPR and how to use a defibrillator. The sessions offer an opportunity to ask questions and help to settle concerns.
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. Providing an essential and potentially life-saving stage in the treatment of anyone suffering a Cardiac Arrest. Defibrillators are easy to operate with step-by-step instructions for members of the community to use in an emergency.
The pub is also home to defibrillator located on an external wall available to the community 24/7. The defibrillator is registered with the local ambulance service and has recently had a site audit to ensure it is fully ready in the event of an emergency.
