What kind of defibrillator

should be kept at a gym?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is unpredictable. When exercising in a gym or health club setting, the chances of cardiac arrest are still very possible—particularly for people of an older age bracket. Because portable defibrillators are now more readily available and easier to use, our expert team at First Aid Accident & Emergency recommend that all gyms, fitness centres and health club environments consider having a defibrillator onsite.

If sudden cardiac arrest occurs, using an AED will significantly increase the chances of survival compared to using just CPR in an attempt for revival. Here at FAAE, we stock a complete range of portable defibrillators and defibrillator packs suitable for any gym or recreational setting.

Heartsine Samaritan 360P – Gym/Sports Club Defibrillator Pack:

This defibrillator pack has been specifically designed with a gym or similar sporting club environment in mind. The defib pack comes with a metal cabinet which is perfect for mounting on the wall of your gym. It also includes a patient prep kit, wall signage for your gym and a training video—all to help make sure you and your staff are prepared for a medical emergency.

This particular AED is extremely light and durable, easy to use and it will remind you when the battery or adhesive pads are due for replacement.

Lifepak CR2 – Tough Case For Gym & Sports Clubs:

Another great option for gyms and fitness centres, this defib pack is extremely lightweight. The package includes a tough and durable waterproof case which makes it ideal for taking with you on the go, like to sporting competitions and events. Similar to the Heartsine Samaritan 360P pack, this package also includes a soft shell carry case, patient prep kit, AED signage and a training video.

The Lifepak CR2 Essential defibrillator has been specifically designed with easy-to-follow instructions that untrained AED users can understand in an emergency situation.
