FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I use a defibrillator on a pregnant woman?2021-05-21T12:17:39+10:00

Yes – but ensure that the defibrillator pads are placed clear of enlarged breasts in order to make sure the electrical current is conducted effectively.

What are the benefits of having a defibrillator in the community?2021-05-21T12:14:09+10:00

Less than 1 in 10 people in Australia survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. This has been partly attributed to two factors that communities can change:

  1. There aren’t enough people prepared to perform CPR when someone has a cardiac arrest.
  2. There aren’t enough defibrillators.

By having a defibrillator in your community and by training more people in CPR, together we can play an important part in saving more lives.

Do you need a defibrillator in the community?2021-05-21T12:12:15+10:00

Yes, your community needs a defibrillator. For every minute someone is in cardiac arrest without CPR and access to a defibrillator, their chance of survival drops by up to 10% each minute. Having a public access defibrillator available in an emergency can be lifesaving especially in rural areas where ambulance response times may be longer.

Can you be held liable for a defibrillator?2020-10-14T19:38:14+11:00

Those using a Defibrillator have absolutely no liability. Defibrillators are designed to administer a carefully calculated shock which will not harm the casualty. Defibrillator settings cannot be altered so there is no liability on the First Aid responder if the casualty does not survive.

An Automated External Defibrillator will also not ‘shock’ someone if they do not need it, so it cannot cause more injury than the casualty is already in. Businesses do not need to worry about a Defibrillator accidentally shocking someone or delivering a higher charge than needed, as they have been designed for the exact scenarios they are sold for – public use by everyday people.

When a Defibrillator is used in an emergency ‘The Good Samaritan Act’ is applicable. The act acknowledges that the First Aid responder did everything within their power to revive the casualty and the loss of life is at no fault of their own.

Will our staff need training?2020-10-14T19:36:54+11:00

We can provide training to your staff at an additional cost. We strongly encourage as many people as possible to be trained in both CPR and AED. Although training is not required to use an AED, it makes people much more comfortable to know how simple the process really is and makes them more likely to step in during an emergency.

How does an AED help someone in cardiac arrest?2020-10-14T19:30:11+11:00

An automatic defibrillator, when applied to the chest, analyses the heart’s rhythm to determine whether an electric shock is required to restore the heart’s normal beat. If it is required, an audible instruction is given, and the device delivers the shock. After the shock, the defibrillator will analyse how the heart responded and if needed, provide another shock.

Where should the AED be located in the workplace?2020-10-14T19:28:32+11:00

Similar to fire extinguishers, defibs should not be locked away in a cupboard and should be easily accessible to everyone. Conducting a site assessment of your workplace should be the first step when determining where to place your AED.  A site assessment offers your best glimpse into response times during an actual emergency situation. Time is critical when sudden cardiac arrest happens.

Start by identifying any “high risk” areas such as workspaces where there is a risk of electric shock or asphyxiation, any areas where health compromised individuals are present on a regular basis, or where there is a high volume of people.

Never place AEDs in offices or areas which may be locked while there are still workers in the building. AEDs should be accessible to all personnel at all times. Select an accessible and visible location and install clear signage. Do not place the AED unit in a locked cupboard in a room away from common areas.

Who should have a defibrillator?2020-10-14T19:20:14+11:00

While not a legal requirement in Australia, it is recommended that the installation and use of AEDs should at least be considered by all workplaces.
