Life-saving medical equipment is just minutes away for anyone who suffers a cardiac arrest in the vicinity of C&L Newsagents in King's Lynn, Norfolk

 

A defibrillator is a device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest.

 

Providing an essential and potentially life-saving stage in the treatment of anyone suffering a Cardiac Arrest, defibrillators are easy to operate with step-by-step instructions for members of the community to use in an emergency.

 

Responsible for around 30,000 out of hospital deaths in the UK every year, sudden cardiac arrest is one of the country’s biggest killers but quick and easy access to a defibrillator can significantly increase the chances of survival.

 

 Jamie Richards, Chief Executive of AEDdonate said: “It’s great to see another AED out in the community. We'd like to thank the Tesco Bags of Help scheme for the support on this campaign. Another community is better prepared in the event of a cardiac arrrest"
