Level 2 Award in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automated External Defibrillation (QCF)

£25.00

Each year over 150,000 die as a result of cardiac arrest, many of which could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Our AED course will help you save life.​

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are now becoming more common throughout a range of workplaces. A casualty’s chance of survival will dramatically decrease at a rate of 10% per minute if an AED is not available. This very practical Automated External Defibrillator course will allow suitably qualified First Aid personnel to use the AED competently and with confidence. Not only does this course deal with the use of an AED but also revisits some basic First Aid skills, including CPR.

  • Assessment of the situation.
  • Chain of Survival.
  • Dealing with unconsciousness.
  • Resuscitation (CPR).
  • Heart Attacks.
  • AED – Maintenance.
  • AED – Safety and use.
  • Scenario training.

There is a formal practical assessment covering resuscitation and use of the AED. This qualification is valid for 1 year.

Defibrillation is a common treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias,ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia. Defibrillation consists of delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the heart with a device called adefibrillator. This depolarizes a critical mass of the heart muscle, terminates the dysrhythmia.This allows normal sinus rhythm to be reestablished by the body’snatural pacemaker, in the sinoatrial node of the heart. Defibrillators can be external, transvenous, or implanted (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator), depending on the type of device used or needed. Some external units, known as automated external defibrillators (AEDs), automate the diagnosis of treatable rhythms.This means that lay responders or bystanders are able to use them successfully with little or no training at all.
