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

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.

Syllabus

A range of subjects are covered including:

  • Responsibilities and reporting
  • Assessment of the situation
  • Dealing with an unresponsive casualty
  • Infection control
  • Resuscitation
  • AED functions
  • Defibrillation procedures
  • Safety measures

CPR and AED training is fast becoming a necessity Mdphysiotherapy 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.”

Certification

This qualification lasts for 3 years. To renew their qualification after 3 years, delegates will need to retake the full course.
