With the news and developments of the
past few days regarding Bolton Wanderers footballer Fabrice Muamba, it makes
everyone realise that even the fittest sports people can suffer a Sudden
Cardiac Arrest without warning. The
prompt action of the Emergency Services and the use of an AED may well have
helped to give Fabrice a second chance of life. Everyone is praying for
his early recovery.
Over five years ago AED Locator (E.U.) Ltd,
working with the Arrhythmia Alliance and Great Western
Ambulance Service NHS Trust, led the way across the UK in
promoting Public Access Defibrillators (PADs). Just
a few are shown below and many more can be viewed further down this page.
Every sporting venue should have a
PAD and we would ask you to join in by contacting us so that we
can explain how simply this can be achieved.
Pictured are examples of four locations
where Public Access Defibrillators have been installed at Sports Clubs - Llanrhaeadr
Football Club near Oswestry in Wales, Mendip Spring Golf Club near
Congresbury in North Somerset, Bath Rugby Football Club in the
City of Bath, and Shipston Leisure Centre in Warwickshire.
