Although defibrillators are becoming more common and accessible, very few people have the basic knowledge to make good use of them.

They are now appearing in many public buildings - but how many people who pass through those buildings have the first idea of what is involved in using one - or when one should be used?

This talk gives basic familiarisation in the use of a defibrillator and the actions which will be required of the person using it - when it is appropriate to use one, and how to do give effective CPR and Rescue Breaths.

Properly used, defibrillators save lives.
