The UK Resuscitation Council (UK) advise that -
‘While it is highly desirable that those who may be called upon to use an AED should be trained in their use, and keep their skills up to date, circumstances can dictate that no trained operator (or a trained operator whose certificate of training has expired) is present at the site of an emergency. Under these circumstances no inhibitions should be placed on any person willing to use an AED.”
So in short you don’t have to be trained to use an AED but we feel that training adds greater confidence.
All the AED’s we supply are simple to use and give detailed voice and visual prompts to make the rescue process simple.
