Register Your Defibrillator On The Circuit.
What is The Circuit? TheCircuit.uk is the UK’s National Defibrillator Network it maps defibrillators across the UK and connects them directly and automatically to Ambulance Services. The Circuits aim is to locate and register the UK’s estimated 100,000 defibrillators, so that ambulance services can direct bystanders to their nearest defibrillator and increase a person’s chances of survival.
Every year in the UK, more than 30,000 people have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) and less than 1 in 10 survive an OHCA. Early defibrillation and CPR can more than double the chances of surviving. It is estimated that 70% of Defibrillators are unknown to Ambulance Services and less likely to be used in an emergency. This is where you can help by registering your Defibrillator on thecircuit.uk
If Your Defibrillator is registered on The Circuit – the national defibrillator network, every ambulance service in the UK will be able to direct bystanders to the nearest life saving defibrillator!
