Dear Yvonne,


Our group is a local not-for-profit walking group based on the Redcliffe peninsula. Our members consist of mainly people who have experienced cardiac problems, but anyone is welcome to join. We walk each Wednesday morning along the beautiful foreshore. We have a BlueCare nurse in attendance each week to monitor and assist with any health care issues.

Yesterday, one of our members experienced chest pain while walking back to our base. A message was delivered back to our BlueCare nurse, Beth who then took our Mediana defribillator to where our member was waiting. Although, he was not unconscious, she applied the pads to chest area and carefully monitored his condition. An ambulance was then called by another member, who was assisting. After this first response ambulance, a paramedic also arrived to the scene. Beth has stated that she found the defribillator was very easy to use, with excellent quality adhesive pads and very clear instructions on where to place them on her patient's chest. Also, very clear instructions were given by the machine to those present, until the ambulance arrived.

Beth agrees that any of our members would be able to confidently apply these pads and use your machine should there be no clinically-trained person in attendance. Our member was transported to the Redcliffe hospital and later discharged in the evening.

So our group would wholeheartedly (excuse the pun!) recommend your brand of defribillator to anyone who is looking to purchase this type of equipment and be able to confidently operate it.

AED - CPR Training with First Aid Brisbane

What is a defibrillator?

A defibrillator is a life-saving device used to treat a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a condition that occurs when the heart unexpectedly stops pumping.

The defibrillator analyses the heart rhythm and recognizes abnormalities.

The machine will decide whether a shock is required to be delivered to the casualty or not.

A defibrillator is commonly known as a an AED (automated external defibrillator) or a ‘defib.

Pesticide "Bombs" or Sprays

Read the product label and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Products containing pyrethrins may be less of a poisoning risk to humans than those containing an organophosphate (an anticholinesterase compound)

Make sure all pets are out of the house.

Make sure all food and cooking utensils are well protected and not left exposed.

Wear a mask when letting off the "bomb" and let off the one furthest from the door first.

Leave house closed up for the time directed by the manufacturer on the label.

Ventilate the house thoroughly.
Wash kitchen sink, benches and surfaces before preparing any food.

Allow one day, then vacuum thoroughly before babies and toddlers are allowed on carpets.

Pregnant women should avoid using the bombs or sprays, but can return to the treated house after it has been well ventilated.

Poisons Information Centre

Hours: 24 hours, 7 days a week

Languages: English

The role of the Poisons Information Centre is to provide the general public and health professionals of Queensland with prompt, up-to-date and evidence- based clinical information and advice to assist in the management of 
poisonings and suspected poisonings. The Centre is also occasionally called upon to provide advice to callers from neighbouring countries, such as Papua New Guinea.

The potential seriousness of a poisoning situation is assessed after a detailed history is obtained from the caller. 

Members of the public may be then given first aid instructions, information on possible symptoms and their onset, or advised on the need for assessment by a doctor or referral to hospital.

The Centre aims to prevent unnecessary visits to doctors and hospitals, to alleviate unnecessary concern for patients and carers where no significant toxicity is likely, and to ensure patients who are poisoned receive prompt and 
effective treatment. 

The Centre also plays a role in poisoning prevention through information provision, educational activities and liaison with other agencies involved in health promotion.

Staff

All calls are answered by clinical pharmacists who have specific additional training in toxicology, risk assessment and the provision of poisons information.

The Centre also has access to a range of consultants who can provide expert advice about a wide range of emergencies, including bites and stings, mushrooms, plants, spiders, 

snakes, insects and the management of poisoned patients as deemed necessary.
