Well, looks like 2017 could be the year!!!! Get ready to read on – this is the reason we get up and go to work each day, to deal with phone calls like this….please read on.
I have just spoken to the Garfield Golf Club in Victoria. They used their Cardiac Science G3 over a weekend during January….. and it was a success!!!!! They are not sure of the age of the man, but he is believed to be in mid to late 50’s and was doing what many do when they come to the Club, enjoying a leisurely round of Golf.
The man simply collapsed; a member of the Club staff quickly ran to grab the AED from their front office and without hesitation opened the lid, followed the instruction and used the training that he remembered. The AED shocked the male, whilst the Ambulance was on the way; this was crucial. Ambulance Officers arrived, stabilised him and then transferred him to hospital.
