Why your shop needs a defibrillator

Life in a store can be extremely busy. Customers entering the store and window shopping, deliveries and employees starting and ending shifts sees the footfall quickly increase.

As the more people that pass by a store or enter it sadly the chances of a cardiac arrest occurring increases.

In the UK over 140,000 people are affected by cardiac arrest each year, making it the biggest killer in the country. It affects both young and old, with 241 school children dying each year. A cardiac arrest is a sudden and life threatening condition which can strike at any time without warning.

Increase survival rates of cardiac arrest

Survival rates of a cardiac arrest can be increased significantly from 5% to 75% with the use of a defibrillator within the first ten minutes.

With the interest of protecting both the public and their workforce a number of leading UK stores have been fitted with Defib Machines. Marks & Spencer and Boots have recently invested heavily in defibrillators, aiming to place at least one in every store across the country. Each of these has also been added to the public register which allows 999 callers to be made aware of where the nearest defibrillator is available to them, an offer that Defib Machines provides and recommends.

Automatic Defib Machines are small portable devices that are installed onto a wall, which can be chosen when the machine is fitted. On installation Defib Machines will provide clear signage for the device, training and a demonstration of the device. Training, however, is not necessary for using a Defib Machine and are designed to be used by anyone.

Make sure you understand the defibrillator cost.
