GreenwichB2B Link ‘n Drink in association with the South East London Chamber of Commerce is an informal and free networking event for businesses from Greenwich and bordering boroughs.
As per usual we will have intensive informal business networking, introductions and a short presentation.
This month’s presentation:
PUBLIC ACCESS DEFIBRILLATORS – HOW TO USE ONE
Sudden cardiac arrest is a significant cause of death in the UK. There are around 60,000 cases annually, however, at present, fewer than 1 person in 10 survives when one occurs out of hospital.
For any chance of survival, the condition must be recognised promptly and a procedure called defibrillation carried out within a critical time period.
The major reason so few people currently survive is that defibrillation isn’t provided quickly enough. For defibrillation to be successful, it needs to be carried out within a few minutes of the onset of ventricular fibrillation.
With increasing numbers of defibrillators now appearing in towns and cities you might be the nearest person to provide this vital help.
Dave Connor, of BEAT Training, will be demonstrating how to use one of these machines, and there might even be an opportunity to have a go ourselves!
