Defibrillators
A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential life saving step in the chain of survival.
If you come across someone who has had acardiac arrest, it’s vital to call 999 andstart CPR. Then you should find out if there is a defibrillator nearby.
There are many defibrillators available in public places such as train stations, shopping centres, airports and leisure centres.
