Many of you will have been down to the Club recently even if not to venture on the water. No doubt you will have noticed we have now had our automated external defibrillator (AED) installed, in the yellow cabinet under the balcony. This unit has been funded by the Aviva Community Fund plus a generous donation from Julian Ricks in memory of his uncle, Seth Marsh.

The cabinet access code is displayed prominently on the noticeboards in the clubhouse.

The unit has been registered with the local emergency services as a public access defibrillator, so anyone in the local area that calls 999 will be directed to the unit and given the access code, whilst an ambulance is despatched. We are thereby actively playing our part in a nationwide programme, supported by British Rowing amongst other organisations, to make access to life saving defibrillators more widespread.

It is therefore important that club members understand what the unit is for, how to access it, and have some knowledge of how to use it. A number of our members, plus our coaches are First Aid trained, but I would encourage all members to watch this short video which explains how to use the unit if required. You will see the unit is a semi-automatic unit, and will guide you through the process to administer first aid to the patient, until the emergency services arrive.

There is a face-shield included in the pack in the defibrillator case, which includes scissors, razor, gloves, etc.

From this short (8m 34s) video you will see the unit is a semi-automatic unit. It will guide you through the process to administer first aid to the patient, until the emergency services arrive.
