We would be delighted to help your Club with your grant application for an approved AED (Automated External Defibrillator) package – we’ll make it simple and easy for you to apply and we offer expert training and ongoing support.
What’s an AED?
An automatic external defibrillator (AED) is a device that analyses the heart rhythm of an unconscious person and delivers an electrical shock in an attempt to restore a normal rhythm. Don’t worry, an AED won't deliver a shock unless necessary. The AED can be delivered to a person by anyone, not only first aiders.
Why do we need a defibrillator?
More than 30,000 Australians suffer from sudden cardiac arrest every year, of which only 5% survive. Immediate access to a defibrillator can lead to a 70% survival rate if applied quickly. An AED should be applied to an unconscious person as soon as possible – for every minute the shock is delayed, there can be a 10% reduction in survival.
What AED packages are available?
Red Cross is pleased to offer packages from leading AED providers – simply choose the package that best suits your needs.
