AED Training and Specialised Rhesuscitation Equipment course



Heart and circulatory disease claims around 200,000 lives each year. Many could have been saved if a defibrillator was made available. Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) are now becoming more common throughout a range of public and work places. A casualty’s survival rate will dramatically increase if an AED is available and if you have appropriately qualified personnel to use it. This very practical course will enable your dental staff to use the AED competently and with confidence.  All necessary resuscitation manikins and AED Trainer for the purpose of delivering the course will be provided by the attending course instructor.

This course aims to  deliver awareness information about specialised rhesuscitation equipment in the dental practice environment. (Please note that it is a requirement that the dental practice provide the practice equipment such as Oxygen cylinders, suction units etc for the purpose of teaching to the delegates therefore this course is more suited to be held in the actual dental practice). The  topics covered in this course are in accordance with current guidelines published by the Resuscitation Council (UK).




A minimum of 3.5 hours consisting of practical and theoretical activities.
