Saving a life using a Defibrillator

Saving a life using a Defibrillator

Stonnington council has installed an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in the U3A Stonnington building because it can greatly improve outcomes if used quickly following cardiac arrest.

Simple and safe to use, the following short videos may help you save someones life. In emergencies requiring a defibrillator also call Triple-Zero emergency services. The “Performing CPR Correctly” video improves understanding and application of CPR. 

Other first aid techniques may be required.

The videos are recommended by St John Ambulance.
