Rye in East Sussex Town Guide

CPR & AED Would you know what to do?


We are extremely lucky in Sussex to have access to so many AED machines, which
can potentially save lives. (If people know how to use them)

A cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. A person’s chance
of survival falls by about 10% for each minute that passes without
defibrillation.

We are a local First Aid Instructor company called First Aid Direct, we cover
both Sussex & Kent.

We are a registered training centre with Qualsafe, (Centre Number 906184) whom
are regulated by Ofqual. We are fully insured to run first Aid Courses.

We are running AED & CPR courses which cover a range of emergency first aid to
teach people how to:

Deal with a choking casualty, Adult child and baby
How to place someone in a recovery position
How to perform CPR on adults, children and babies
How to deal with a Heart and Angina attack
Heart rhythms and when someone needs a shock from an AED
How to use a AED on an adult, child and baby
Safety when using a AED
Reporting AED usage
Post traumatic stress (Following an unsuccessful resuscitation)
Survival rates of AED usage

The course is a day course (people who successfully complete the course would
receive a Qualsafe Awards Certificate) I am advertising the AED & CPR courses in
the local community (charity shops and church halls.)

Every second matters and this course is designed to give confidence to act
quickly and effectively. Most importantly, the course will also teach
defibrillator operators how to perform effective CPR.

I am running scheduled courses over the next 3 months. It can be a work course,
a group of friends or individuals that wish to know how to perform CPR and use
an AED

We also run other courses: Paediatric First Aid, Emergency Paediatric First Aid,
Emergency First Aid and First Aid At Work

Kind regards
