By searching the web I have found a couple of videos which may be useful. The first is familiarisation video which takes about 8 minutes so please have a look whilst having a coffee – if you ever need it then it could help save a life. This is no substitute for proper training but as you will see the AED guides even untrained people to safely use the
The second video is more detailed, about 30 minutes, and covers unit the AED in real time on a mannequin, then going over it more thoroughly explains the process. Again this is not intended to replace hands on training but will help should the situation arise.
Should you be interested in a training session, or helping to regularly check the AED over then please contact the trustees.
