Strategic review of defibrillators could lead to more lives being saved.


Following a call by Willaston and Rope Ward Councillor Brian Silvester for more defibrillators  in major public buildings in the Borough  a key piece  of work has been commissioned to undertake a strategic review of the current placement of defibrillators across the public, voluntary and private sectors. (See below) He said, " Following that we will know where the gaps in the coverage are. Then we can work with the private and voluntary sectors, like Mr. Greatorex suggests below, to improve the coverage and save lives. More defibrillators are needed because we have some of the  highest numbers of people aged 55 and over, per head of population, in the country. Also the ambulance response times for some parts of Borough are not good. We know that with defibrillation the survival chances increase from 10% to 75%. They are simple to use, computerised, tell you what to do and it analyses the heart rhythm for you, shocking the patient out of an abnormal rhythm. They are a very cost effective way of saving lives. I am pleased that we are making progress on this."
