As we are all acutely aware, the moment someone has a cardiac arrest, the clock starts ticking. Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival. But many defibrillators are never used because emergency services don’t know where they are or how to access them.
This is where The Circuit comes in.
The Circuit – the national defibrillator network, connects defibrillators to NHS ambulance services across the UK so that in those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest, they can be accessed quickly to help save lives.
Many within the Cardiac Physiology workforce are guardians for defibrillators within their community. That’s why The Circuit urgently need you to register your defibrillator today.
Why should you register your defibrillator?
A defibrillator registered on The Circuit could make the difference between life and death. Why?
- If your defibrillator isn’t registered on The Circuit, ambulance services can’t find it when it’s needed most.
- Every defibrillator needs someone like you to make sure it’s registered and ready to do its life saving work. The Circuit helps you to do that with regular reminders about the upkeep of your defibrillator.
- Chances to save lives are being missed – defibrillators are currently being used in less than 1 in 20 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests.
The defibrillator you’re responsible for could double a person’s chance of survival. Take charge. Join The Circuit today.
