Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime. It can take place in homes, on the street and elsewhere in the community. A cardiac arrest is the ultimate medical emergency and is to be dealt with urgently. Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is well recognised as the only effective therapy for cardiac arrest. However, without proper training to use AED and quick thinking, these relatively common occurrences are likely to be fatal. That is why Learn Construction offers Automated External Defibrillators (AED) training.
