We conducted a free first aid courseWe conducted a free first aid course for our partners in February at Zsolt Udvar Office Buildings after set up the defibrillator, our present to our customers for Christmas 2018. During the course, participants got not only basic first aid knowledge but learned also how to use a defibrillator.
AED (Automated External Defibrillator) – During the First Aid Course, we learned that ventricular fibrillation is responsible for the majority of circulatory arrest outside the hospital. The only effective treatment for ventricular fibrillation is defibrillation. With this defibrillation (shock), the chaotic electrical activity of the heart muscle is suppressed, and the electrical silence thus created gives the heart a chance to begin its own normal pacing.
A technical achievement of recent decades is the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), which allows defibrillation to be performed by a layman first, long before the ambulance arrives. This medical device can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. The built-in security system prevents accidental or unjustified shocks.
It is of utmost importance for our company to provide our partners with a safer and up-to-date workplace environment in the Zsolt Udvar Office Buildings, thereby supporting our partners' responsible daily work.
It is crucial that a layman begins resuscitation as soon as possible. The chances of survival are greatly increased by the availability of an on-site auto-defibrillator, following the instructions of which laymen can professionally and effectively provide vital functions until an advanced level of assistance (rescue) is received. In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, rarely is immediate help available, so basic resuscitation is the task of the street man.
