4-Hour Basic Life Support and Safe use of an AED Course

Level 2 Basic Life Support and Safe use of an Automated External Defibrillator : 4 hour course

Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places.

A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it.

This very practical course will enable you to use the AED competently and with confidence.

Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED, but it also includes vital training in basic life support including resuscitation.

CPR and AED training is fast becoming a necessity Nuco Training not only offer dedicated CPR and AED training courses but also this new 4 hour Basic Life Support and Safe use of an AED course.

A recent UK Government report states …

It is estimated that around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year in the UK. Overall survival rates vary across England, but range between 2% and 12%. However, survival rates as high as 75% have been reported where CPR and defibrillation are delivered promptly. This is why the statutory guidance on supporting pupils at school with medical conditions advises schools to consider purchasing an AED as part of their first-aid equipment.”
