We are delighted to have received a government grant to purchase a new defibrillator.
Last night Steve from St John Ambulance Australia trained our team managers and volunteers.
We have located our new defibrillator above our freezer within the equipment room.
This room is located off to the right as you exit the players run leading from pitch 1.
Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening irregular heartbeat.
A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart.
This depolarises a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the irregular heartbeat.
Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the wall of the heart is able to re-establish a normal rhythm.
