We at BLS First Aid Training feel very strongly about defibrillators & the life saving potential they have. One of our key goals over the years has been to get as many Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) out to the Australian Public as possible.
The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) is a Commonwealth entity and advises the Australian Government through the highest quality research and research training in all fields of science, social sciences and the humanities.
This month, the ARC has published a comprehensive guide to AEDs. The document is designed to provide information about Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and how they can be deployed in the community to help resuscitate an out of hospital cardiac arrest patient

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a significant public health issue. In Australia, as many as 30,000 OHCAs occur every year – with fewer than 10% surviving (Ambulance Victoria, 2016). However, with immediate resuscitation more lives can be saved.
