Defibrillation AED Course

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.

  • The chain of survival
