CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is used to continue a supply of oxygen to the brain and other organs before the heart is restarted by a defibrillator or by paramedics. During CPR, the chest is compressed with a steady rhythm to keep blood flowing to the brain.
CPR is a lifesaving skill that everyone should learn. We offer the ‘MiniAnne CPR & AED’ training kit (pictured right). This allows individuals to learn the core skills of CPR and the use of an AED in less than an hour. Contact us to order a training kit.

They analyse the heart’s rhythm and automate the delivery of shocks while also coordinating the administration of CPR. Once activated, most AEDs guide the user through each step of the defibrillation process by providing voice and visual prompts.
Using an AED is simple and straightforward:
