How To Access A Defibrillator

Call 999 Now or as soon as possible

Time is critical to ensure an effective initial response

To open cabinet in an emergency:

1. Call 999 as soon as possible. Keep Calm and Follow Instructions

  • NB: Call 999 when on scene with the patient before you consider fetching a defibrillator from a public access cabinet if you can.
  • If you are alone make the call and follow instructions from SCAS

If you do not have your own phone but can access one very quickly then do so and/or SHOUT FOR HELP. Start CPR soonest.

  • If 2 of you are on scene one must start CPR straightaway; the other make the 999 call, and if directed by SCAS, fetch a local defibrillator
  • If you are not able to call 999, start and continue with CPR and SHOUT FOR HELP to summon any available assistance.

NB: If you are next to a defibrillator cabinet tell the call operator you are at that location.

  • Location Marked in black on white background (front of cabinet, e.g. A123)

2. You will be given an unlock code by call operator

3. Stay on the line for further guidance

  • When you return to the patient with the defibrillator put your phone on ‘speaker mode’ so that you, and perhaps another, can continue to follow instructions
  • When you switch ON the defibrillator the defibrillator will start to give you defibrillation and CPR instructions
  • The defibrillator will repeat each instruction until that instruction is completed before moving on to the next instruction
