Medical Kit Bags
HFR Solutions supply a range of medical kit bags, which support our training courses and provide delegates with essential, unique and advanced medical and first aid equipment to support their delivery of first aid care and medical response.
This range of medical equipment and kit bags support the various training standards we currently deliver. These medical kit bags range from the Medical Personal Pouch which supports our level 1 standard - which provides delegates with the knowledge to deliver first aid care right up to the advanced level 5 standard focused on the delivery of advanced first response levels of medical care, whereas this standard is supported by the First Responder Advanced Kit Bag.
Cardiac Arrests and Survival Rates
Unfortunately, cardiac arrests can occur at any moment and Automated External Defibrillator (AED’s) are a vital resource to support the preservation of life.
UK statistics highlight:
- Heart and circulatory diseases cause more than a quarter (28 per cent) of all deaths in the UK
- Survival rates from cardiac arrests are very low
- Every minute without cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation reduces the chance of survival by up to 10 per cent
If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest, the chance of survival increases from 6% to 74%.1&2
Supporting Community-Based Defibrillators
Community defibrillators have become a vital community resource and HFR Solutions recognises the importance of easily-accessible defibrillators within the community. Visit the community interest section of our website to view some recent community defibrillator projects.
