Defibrillator for Tuddenham St Martin Village Hall

Tuddenham Village Hall now has a PAD – a Public Access Defibrillator. It will is installed in the porch-way of the village hall, in a heated, locked cabinet.

How it works:
In an emergency, where someone is in cardiac arrest (unconscious, unresponsive, not breathing or not breathing normally), a call to 999 will provide the access code to the cabinet allowing the defibrillator to be taken from the cabinet and brought to the patient. The unit provides audio instructions to explain how to attach pads to the patients chest and then it applies the correct charge to the pads – so no training is required.
