Staying Alive

As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping our staff healthy, we've bought an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) for the office, and we asked Dave Barrass from the St John Ambulance to come in and show us how to use it. We've learned that for every minute a person in cardiac arrest is not successfully treated by defibrillation, the chance of survival decreases by 10 percent. Now we have a defibrillator right here, our office is one of the safest places to suffer a heart attack.
