The work of the Microgaming Health & Care Trust has changed lives. It might even have extended or saved a few. 

One of the trust’s biggest achievements thus far has been the installation of more than 20 AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) in locations across the island.

Why AEDs?

A defibrillator is the only piece of equipment that has the capability to restore heart rhythm following cardiac arrest. If used immediately, the sufferer has a 90% chance of survival. 

No medical knowledge is required to use a defibrillator; however, employers are advised to organise equipment training sessions for workers, and members of the public are encouraged to attend basic life support classes. Early defibrillation, basic life support and a timely call for help can dramatically improve an individual’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest.

Please note that the information above must not be used as a training tool; it is intended purely to demonstrate the usability and efficacy of a defibrillator. AED and basic life support training should be sought from a trusted organisation such as Heartstart, St John Ambulance or the Red Cross.

AEDs supplied by the Microgaming Health & Care Trust can be found at the following locations. Please note that the defibrillators have been placed at these locations for the benefit of staff members and the general public. Thanks to the involvement of Wyn Kewley and her team, at least two members of staff at each location have been trained to use the equipment and perform CPR.
