We have a Cardiac Defibrillator and we are not afraid to use it !
Staff recently got trained on this super easy to use,life saving device. Our instructor called it ” the idiot box !” because of its ease of application to a person in cardiac arrest … leads are applied..it reads the heart rythm and determines what shock to apply while ambulance is on its way … a life saver in a way that CPR can never be.
The device is located over the lockers in the clinic …feel free to take a look anytime.
They are appearing in all sorts of sports locations,airports but we are currently the only physiotherapy clinic to have one on the North Shore.
