AEDs for Schools and Universities

Safeguarding staff and students are of the utmost importance, and having our range of defibrillators in schools and educational facilities will significantly increase the odds of surviving against an SCA.
Research focused on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) cases among children and adolescents (excluding infants under one year old) indicates an occurrence rate ranging from 3 to 9 per 100,000 individuals annually.

Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) can affect individuals of all ages, including children and adolescents. According to research studies, the incidence of OHCA among individuals in this age group (excluding infants under one year old) ranges from 3 to 9 per 100,000 individuals each year.

Considering that there are over 10.6 million students attending schools in the United Kingdom during the 2021/22 academic year, the potential for an OHCA event in a school setting cannot be overlooked. This makes it crucial to ensure that schools have proper emergency response protocols in place, including the availability of defibrillators, which can significantly increase the chances of survival if used within the critical time window. The UK government have announced that schools without a defibrillator will be required to have one by the end of the 22/23 academic year, building on the curriculum and teaching first aid/CPR.

At Martek Lifecare, we have award-winning AED bundles that can be tailored to suit any educational facility. We stock a wide range of accessories such as training devices, storage cabinets, cases and additional parts such as batteries and pads.

The AEDs are incredibly easy to use, with clear instructions and audio prompts, meaning no training is required.
Our defibrillators can also detect a shockable rhythm (VF/VT) and can determine when a shock is needed and when not.

Protect Your Students & Staff

Rapid defibrillation is the only proven way to treat Sudden Cardiac Arrest. While CPR is an essential part of the treatment, it only buys some time before a defibrillator arrives.

Providing treatment to a pupil or staff member within 60 seconds gives the victim a 90% chance of survival, with odds dropping each minute that passes. Treatment within the first 3-5 minutes of an SCA drops to 74%. Without treatment, the chance of survival decreases by 10% per minute.

The national standard for Category 1 ambulance calls mandates an average response time of 7 minutes. If a patient does not receive treatment within this critical time frame, their chances of survival can plummet dramatically, to as low as 30%.

Having an AED on hand means that treatment can be delivered instantly, drastically increasing the chance of survival.

Lifeline is the most accessible AED to use on the market – you don’t need a medical background or any special training. You can’t make a mistake, and it’s impossible to shock someone who isn’t having a cardiac arrest.
The unit will assess the victim’s heart rhythm and make all the decisions, guiding you through each step of the rescue process by providing clear audio and visual prompts, even in the noisiest of environments.

It’s particularly well suited for schools because it doesn’t look like an intimidating medical device, an essential factor for anyone feeling daunted when using an AED for the first time.

Our range of AED bundles will help increase the SCA survival rate by up to 90%.

Can you use an AED on a child without child pads?

What are the risks of using a Defibrillator on school children?

Using Defibrillators on school children is generally safe, and there is no risk of harming them if used correctly. Lifeline defibrillators are designed for people of any size or age and can detect whether a patient is a child or an adult, automatically adjusting the energy levels accordingly.
