Healthcorp’s Defibrillation AED course recognises that every year there are approx. 30,000 cases of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) within Australia, with the majority occurring outside a hospital setting. The average ambulance response time in metro areas is 11 minutes and chances for survival decrease by 10% with each passing minute after SCA, making access to a defibrillator vital. A heart attack and SCA are two different conditions and the only treatment from ventricular fibrillation (the most common form of SCA) is defibrillation.
Healthcorp’s Automated External Defibrillation (AED) course provides individuals with the knowledge and skills to enable them to effectively use an AED as part of the resuscitation process to a victim who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
Heathcorp’s Defibrillation AED course is available in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Australia-wide.
The face to face training is 2.5 hours and covers both theory and practical aspects of Defibrillator Training. Students are required to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the course commencement or will be refused entry.
