    Story

    Kristie Cotteril, a local resident recently trained to use a defibrillator and decided to start a small but perfectly formed task force `Castlefields Community Defibrillator Fund' to raise awareness and funds to purchase an Automated External Defibrillator available for use by members of the public in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest in our local community.

    A Public Access Defibrillation Scheme (PADs) is any location that has an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) available for use by members of the public and/or staff in the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

    The Government’s White Paper entitled ‘Saving Lives – Our Healthier Nation’ focussed on having people trained in public places that could use a defibrillator. There are around 120,000 victims of out of hospital sudden cardiac arrests annually in the UK

    What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

    A cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops beating effectively and normal breathing ceases. This results in the casualty becoming unresponsive and urgent intervention is required. The chances of survival are greatly increased when an AED is applied.

    What is an AED?

    Automated External Defibrillator’s (AED) are devices that can deliver an electric shock to a casualty in a cardiac arrest. These devices are simple and safe to use.

    Please support us to make a difference.

    Kind regards

    Castlefields Community Defibrillator Fund

      We met on 12.09.17 at Castlefields Community Hall on a rainy evening to discuss Kristie's idea of raising money for a Public Access Defibrillator. We are currently looking at providers of defibrillators, raising awareness and more importantly raising funds to benefit the whole community.
