Important – due to potential structural issues with the roof at East Challow Village Hall we have had to move our upcoming winter association meeting on Friday 22nd March 2019.
Our meeting will now start at 7.45pm in The Millennium Room at Steventon Village Hall, The Green, Steventon, Abingdon OX13 6RR.
Matt Richards will be leading our session with a talk on How to use a ‘Public Access Defibrillator’ and will also cover CPR.
When someone suffers cardiac arrest, for every minute that passes without defibrillation a person’s chances of survival can decrease by up to 10%. By performing CPR and using a defibrillator, you’ll give someone the best possible chance of survival. Particularly in rural areas, early defibrillation is absolutely vital while the patient waits for the ambulance to arrive.
Matt will explain how defibrillators work and debunk some of the misunderstandings about when to use a defibrillator. This will be an opportunity for you to learn how to use an External Automatic Defibrillator, and Matt will also bring a couple of Resuscitation Manikins (or “Resusci Annie”) for you to practice CPR on, so the evening is a combination of talk/demo and practical for those who wish it.
This is a chance to refresh and learn valuable skills that will not only be of use in the apiary, but also in your day-to-day life, and we look forward to seeing you there.
