Shocktober! St John Qld defibs that SAVE LIVES!

First aid, News from St John - 15 Oct 2021

Save with the St John G5 Defibrillator Bundle.

At St John we are committed to empowering our community with the skills to handle a medical emergency where CPR or an AED may be required. It has been proven time and time again that a defib, with CPR, saves lives, and we want to reach as many clubs, gyms, businesses, schools …(you get the idea) to ensure that there is a life saving device where you need it, when you need it!

What is Cardiac Arrest?

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is usually caused by an irregularity in the electrical activity in the heart, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. SCA can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Around 20,000 Australians suffer a sudden cardiac arrest outside a hospital every year. When sudden cardiac arrest strikes, a defibrillator can mean the difference between life and death.

What is CPR?

CPR is a lifesaving technique which can sustain life until an ambulance arrives. The procedure involves chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth (rescue breaths) that help circulate blood and oxygen in the body. CPR is a skill that everyone can learn — you don’t need to be a health professional to do it.

But in a sea of defibrillators, with each one offering ultimately the same result, why would you choose a St John G5 defibrillator? Quite simply – it’s simple, it’s intuitive, it’s (in our opinion) the best on the market.. and most importantly, it SAVES LIVES! When you are in an emergency situation, you need to trust that you have the best equipment to hand.
