Experts Reveal the Surprising Truth About Defibrillators and How Anyone Can Use One to Save a Life

Defibrillators are a relatively recent life-saving invention, but one that is all too often viewed as ‘exclusively for the experts.’ This couldn’t be further from the truth.

According to My First Aid Course Brisbane, anyone can use a defibrillator and they might just save someone else’s life by doing so. While defibrillators are surprisingly user-friendly, even for the untrained, the leading provider of first aid courses in Brisbane still recommends people familiarise themselves with the device by participating in a first aid course.

A defibrillator, or AED, is an easy-to-use portable device designed to assess for and deliver an electrical shock to someone in cardiac arrest. My First Aid Course Brisbane explains that the shock can be successful in resuscitation by resetting a heart that is in a chaotic pattern.

The key signs of cardiac arrest are unresponsiveness and abnormal breathing, says the leading training provider. There are a lot of different reasons why this happens, but the symptoms are the same – and defibrillation, combined with CPR, will likely be the only way to get the heart beating again. 

My First Aid Course Brisbane explains that defibrillators assess the heart rhythm of the patient and will only instruct the user to shock them if it is necessary. Because the device itself decides whether a shock is needed and provides instructions to the rescuer, the person administering first aid can use the defibrillator confidently without fear of causing harm. When used effectively, defibrillators have a dramatic and positive impact on chances of survival.

If someone is showing symptoms of cardiac arrest, My First Aid Course Brisbane says the first step is to tell the emergency services and begin performing CPR. The best way to learn and practice CPR and emergency response skills is by attending an accredited first aid and CPR course from a reputable provider, like My First Aid Course Brisbane, which offers group training and public courses across Brisbane. 

AEDs can be found in a prominent position in many public spaces, such as train stations, shopping malls, gyms, sporting venues and large office buildings. My First Aid Course Brisbane says when a defibrillator arrives on scene, the user needs to simply turn it on and follow the audible prompts.

Cincinnati Bengals Center Ted Karras Launches ‘The Cincy Hat’ Website Sales Tonight at 7 p.m. EST

Proceeds to Benefit Indianapolis-Based Village of Merici

INDIANAPOLIS – November 22, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

An act of friendship toward new teammates has turned into a full-fledged philanthropic endeavor for Cincinnati Bengals player Ted Karras. Fans and local media have quickly taken notice of Karras and other players wearing new “Cincy” hats in the locker room. Starting tonight at 7 p.m. EST, the hats are being made available to the public for the first time. 

The Cincy Hat” will be sold online, with the proceeds going to the Village of Merici in Indianapolis. The organization provides direct support services, learning opportunities, and independent living through partnerships with various developers. The Village of Merici currently supports more than 75 people throughout Indianapolis with a goal of self-reliance. 

“The hats were originally a fun gift for my new teammates through a family friend’s golf supply business,” Karras says. “I figured everyone loves to get a piece of gear, and the response from my teammates, Bengal fans, and media members was extraordinary. The demand for the hats grew rapidly thanks to my teammates wearing them in interviews, and we decided to sell them, but it had to benefit Village of Merici.”

Karras’ involvement with Village of Merici is thanks to childhood friend Matt Renie. Karras and Renie were high school classmates at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.

“Ted grew up as a family friend observing his friend’s brother who has intellectual and developmental disabilities,” says Colleen Renie, Executive Director of Village of Merici. “Ted also has a family member with autism. He saw the potential in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their desire to live independently as they grew up.”

There are currently three hats available, with a fourth in the works. The hats retail for $35 each, and customers can choose from black, orange or white. The fourth hat will be white with a black logo.

The funds will go to supporting the Village of Merici programs that teach and support individuals in independent living skills to enable them to be successful.

“I am so grateful that a fun gift and project has found a special purpose,” Karras says. “It’s a great hat with an awesome design that I hope can become the unofficial hat of the Bengals. The Village of Merici is a very special place that does so much good. Any way I can ever help their cause is a special opportunity for me.”

To purchase a hat, visit thecincyhat.com. The website also offers a link for donations for Village of Merici. For more information regarding Village of Merici, visit villageofmerici.org or call Karyl Davis, Director of Development, at 317-601-0513.
