2015/02/19 - AED Upgrade for Vic Mix Sites

Vic Mix Upgrades all sites to carry the latest AED (Automated External Defibrillator).

Following on from 1st Aid refresher training in January, Vic Mix has upgraded all of its operational sites to carry the latest and greatest in life saving technology.
The "Powerheart AED G3 Automatic" is a reliable tool capable of coaching and guiding anyone through a successful rescue. For further information, see the Powerheart Brochure by clicking here.
An AED is used in cases of life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias which lead to cardiac arrest. The rhythms that the device will treat are usually limited to:
1.Pulseless Ventricular tachycardia
2.Ventricular fibrillation
In each of these two types of shockable cardiac arrhythmia, the heart is electrically active, but in a dysfunctional pattern that does not allow it to pump and circulate blood. In ventricular tachycardia, the heart beats too fast to effectively pump blood. Ultimately, ventricular tachycardia leads to ventricular fibrillation. In ventricular fibrillation, the electrical activity of the heart becomes chaotic, preventing the ventricle from effectively pumping blood.
