Why defibs are important at cricket clubs
A cardiac arrest can strike at any time and in any place, but they are particularly common in places of exercise. Crickets clubs have experienced tragic incidents in the past as players are struck by the heavy cricket ball at high speeds. It’s important for all sport clubs to be prepared for emergency situations with a life-saving automatic defibrillator.
Defib Machines offers the HeartSine Samaritan 360p automatic defibrillator for rent from just £1 a day. Specifically designed to be used by anyone responding to a cardiac arrest, the survival rate of a victim increases significantly when a defibrillator is present.
Accidents At Cricket Clubs Do Occur
Previous accidents have taken place at cricket clubs during matches. In one incident, a player was struck in the chest by a ball when batting and unfortunately died following a cardiac arrest. Situations like these can be prevented with the installation of a defibrillator in all public spaces.
If a cricketer or crowd member is experiencing a cardiac arrest, then a defibrillator will conduct a full ECG and administer a shock if required based on the heart rhythm of the victim. This is an automatic process that removes human error and ensures success.
Cardiac arrest continues to be the biggest cause of death in the UK with over 150,000 reported incidents each year. It is an attack that does not discriminate, affecting people of all ages and fitness levels. Make sure your cricket club is protected by renting a defibrillator from Defib Machines.
