Semley Defibrillator, Church Farm

 

 

During the current COVID 19 crisis, first responders to medical emergencies should not give mouth to mouth resuscitation (even if the patient is not breathing); chest compressions should be used only. The defibrillator can be used if required, but the talking prompts on giving mouth to mouth breaths are to be ignored.  Only use chest compressions and maintenance of the airway.
