Korinderie Ridge Community AED

Our heart safe community at Korinderie Ridge, Evans Head

International Paramedic College recently delivered a new Lifepak CR2 Defib unit or AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to Korinderie Ridge Community in Evans Head

Korinderie Ridge Community Co-Operative Evans Head

Korinderie Ridge Community has put a new state of the art AED or “Defib Machine” at its tranquil location overlooking Evans Head to look after its community members. Recently, Doug and Meg from the community attended one of our free “What to do until the ambulance arrives” courses at Evans Head and Casino. They decided that an AED was a great idea as they live somewhat remotely with some difficult access and egress issues. They ordered the Lifepak AED gold value package with training and support locally from International Paramedic College. We provided a free upgrade of the model to the CR2 with wireless capability which would normally cost $600 more, free of charge.

AED Awareness training

AED awareness and emergency first aid training was delivered after our community lunch and we went on to explore what they can do until the ambulance arrives in an emegency. The group was particularly interested in Bleeding control with the military CAT tourniquets and the emergency bandage or “Israeli bandage” as it is sometimes called.

People in communities such as this face issues with snake bites, ticks and servere bleeding so we took the time to show them how to use our first aid essentials packages, tick tox and a few tricks of the trade to stop the bleed.

Having timely access to an AED is a smart move as is being cardiac safe because the Australian Resuscitation Council says “for every minute defibrillation is delayed there is a 10% reduction in survival.” It is one of the 7 reasons why you need an AED?

Did you know?

  • Four people under 35 suffer a sudden cardiac arrest in Australia every week.
  • Around 20,000 Australians suffer a cardiac arrest outside a hospital every year. 
  • The first 3-5 minutes after sudden cardiac arrest hold the key to survival.
  • The survival rate if you have a cardiac arrest outside of hospital is approximately 10%
  • An AED applied early can change the survival rate dramatically.

So it is all about reducing the time to first shock. First Aid training and CPR courses will help people feel more confident in using an AED and providing effective CPR but this AED is designed to be simple to use and can be used by people without formal training. It is a great public access defibrillator.

Now they are part of our “Pay it Forward” AED Program

This AED is part of International Paramedic Colleges unique “Pay it Forward Program” so if the community ever need to use it in a genuiene Cardiac Arrest we will donate another AED to the Community in accordance with their wishes.

The Key To Survival in Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the “Time to First Shock.”

“Allocating resources in a co-operative way can be difficult. Differing demands on limited resources can push the decision to purchase an AED further back. It is easy to kick the can down the road until something tragic happens but this community have made a great choice and put their sense of community values upfront. I am so impressed with them. The purchase of a defib gives everybody in the community a better chance of survival in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. We recommended the lifepak essentials AED to them because we believe it is so simple for anybody to use in an emergency and it has adult and paediatric capablitity built in to it”.

Craig Nolan

CEO and Paramedic, International Paramedic College

The “time to first shock” is a critical indicator of survival from sudden cardiac arrest, so a highly visible, easily accessible location with clear signage can reduce the time to first shock and save lives in the event of an emergency.

Where should we place our AED?

To find the best place for your AED ask yourself a few simple questions:

AED cabinetsWhat is the highest risk area?

What is the highest visible traffic area closest to the high risk area?

Will the AED be accessible at all times?

Will it need to be indoors or outside?

An AED cabinet and signage make your AED highly visible and placement of your AED should be centralised and close to or located in areas that hold the highest risk of someone going into sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). You may need more than one AED to ensure they are close at hand and minimise response time.

An AED should be available at all times and never be locked in a drawer or hidden from view as  “out of sight is out of mind”. Free Defib SignEvery study shows that signage that directs people to the location of an AED is something that should be planned and consistent from floor to floor.

Consider that if your a large business or location that signage should be placed on every floor to direct people easily to the AED’s location. The signs should be located preferably by an elevator and/or staircase indicating which floor and/or room the AED is on. Other signs are available for locations with only one floor such as signs with directional arrows, 3 dimensional wall signs, as well as location specific signs. You could also consider the hire or lease of an AED as a solution for your business.

To help with clear signage so someone can find it quickly you can download this free wall chart from the Australian Resuscitation Council

Also, if a sudden cardiac arrest occurs the person will become unconscious and will stop breathing or stop breathing normally. While CPR keeps blood moving around the body, especially to the brain, it cannot reverse the electrical problem. This electrical problem needs to be treated with a defibrillator or AED to stop the chaotic electrical activity in the hope that a normal electrical mechanical response will be restored.

Call the Ambulance on 000 in Australia for sudden cardiac arrest. Start CPR and ensure you have a Defibrillator

And while training isn’t essential to use an AED, CPR training will reduce the time to first shock and increase accuracy of pad placement which helps improve survival rates. Training shows how easy the “defib” is to use, reducing any fear, anxiety or reluctance people may have should they need to use a public access defibrillator or workplace AED.

Highly visible, high traffic and high risk areas are the best placement areas for AED’s in the workplace or as public access defibrillators.

Why Buy an AED?

 

Its a smart move being cardiac safe because the Australian Resuscitation Council says “for every minute defibrillation is delayed there is a 10% reduction in survival.” In Australia you should consider the 7 reasons why you need an AED?

What is a defibrillator?

A defibrillator (sometimes called a ‘defib’, or AED an automated external defibrillator) can save someone’s life if they have a sudden cardiac arrest

Did you know?

  • Four people under 35 suffer a sudden cardiac arrest in Australia every week.
  • Around 20,000 Australians suffer a cardiac arrest outside a hospital every year. 
  • The first 3-5 minutes after sudden cardiac arrest hold the key to survival.
  • The survival rate if you have a cardiac arrest outside of hospital is approximately 10%
  • An AED applied early can change the survival rate dramatically.

So it is all about reducing the time to first shock. First Aid training and CPR courses will help people feel more confident in using an AED and providing CPR but this AED is designed to be simple to use and can be used by people without formal training. It is a great public access defibrillator.

Pay it Forward AED Program

This AED is part of International Paramedic Colleges unique “Pay it Forward Program” so if the Ballina Netball Club ever need to use it in a genuiene Cardiac Arrest we will donate another AED to the Community in accordance with their wishes.

Why do this?

The Key To Survival in Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the “Time to First Shock.”

“The Ballina Netball Club have done their members a great silent service. The purchase of a defib gives everybody a better chance of survival in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. We recommended the lifepak essentials AED to them because we believe it is so simple for anybody to use in an emergency and it has adult and paediatric capablitity built in to it”.

AED Recall

Information on Phillips AED Recall

We have had a lot of inquires from local businesses and retailers about an AED recall due to a recent local incident.

We are providing some information here so you can assess whether your AED is affected and what to do about it. We do not sell Phillips AED’s but we have had a number of calls.

The recall on the Phillips AED device

Phillips had issues affecting 3 models of AED it sold worldwide which may affect 660,000 units. A quick google search reveals a number of news articles on the worldwide recall. The Journal article states:

“…. that HeartStart FRx, HeartStart HS1 (Home) and HeartStart HS1 (OnSite) devices manufactured between 2002 and 2013 are affected.

The warning was issued by Philips after it identified a failure in how certain defibrillators alerted users about their routine self-tests via an audible chirp.

The company revealed that it became aware of 13 incidents where the chirp failed during treatment, and delivered at least one shock to the patient being treated before failing.

Among the cases where the patient outcome was known, 5 patients died and 2 patients were successfully resuscitated and survived”.

You can read the complete article  from October 2018 here

Specific advice from the company is available here

https://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/resources/landing/aed-recall

If you would like any advice about a replacement product and the AED that we recommend give us a call. Our mission is to get AED’s or defibs close to where they are needed.

We have a great AED package deal for our corporate customers. We are running out a few programs where shops, body corporates or even neighbours and houses in your street can band together and purchase an AED which includes free training from us. For example, if 12 people put in $200 we can supply an AED, a cabinet to house it visibly and training in its use.
