A 999/112 call must always be made whilst with the patient.  The reason for this is that the 999 operators will have immediate access to the location of the call, either directly from the landline or via GPS if a modern mobile. Always ask for an Ambulance.

The 999 operators will be able to tell you where your closest defibrillator is, together with the defibrillator cabinet access code.

What is a defibrillator

defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.

defibrillator may also be referred to as a defib, an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) or a PAD (Public Access Defibrillator).

Using a defibrillator could save a life

Cardiac arrests can happen to anyone, at any time. The following steps give someone the best chance of survival. If you come across someone in cardiac arrest:

  1. Call 999
  2. Start CPR
  3. Ask someone to bring a defibrillator if there’s one nearby (if no one is available to get one, listen to the emergency operator for further instructions)
  4. Turn on the defibrillator and follow its instructions.
