Defibrillators In Barnstaple
Barnstaple Town Council currently provides three defibrillators. These are located in Pilton High Street, Butchers Row and Rock Park.
According to the British Heart Foundation a defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest. A defibrillator may also be referred to as a defib, an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) or a PAD (Public Access Defibrillator).
There are instructions on how to use these on the defibrillator boxes and in the event of an emergency you must call 999 or 112 and ask for the ambulance service. The emergency call handler will talk you through how to access the defibrillator using a code, and how to operate one in an emergency.
