4th March 2017New Zoll Defibrillator

The health of our customers is of paramount importance to us at Tyddyn Isaf, which is why we have recently invested in a fully-automated Zoll defibrillator. The defibrillator is located in our main building and is for the use of any one on the park, or in our local area in the event of an emergency. The most effective treatment for a person who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest is the combined administration of CPR and the use of a defibrillator.  A defibrillator will deliver an electrical shock to stop the hearts irregular rhythm and allow the hearts natural pacemaker to restart the natural rhythm.  Ambulances have them on board but using a defibrillator in the minutes before an ambulance arrives can double someone’s chances of survival. In the event of an emergency, emergency services should be contacted by calling 9 9 9, or 9 9 9 9 from the phone in the information centre.  Always remember to also alert a member of staff as we will ensure that the service required has clear access to the park.  We are also first aid trained and may be able to seek assist medical assistance from someone on the park. We do hope that the defibrillator is never used, but, if it is then we hope that with this purchase we can help save lives.
