The importance of registering defibrillator’s

The Circuit is a defibrillator network, providing a nationwide overview of where defibrillators can be found. Many defibrillators never get used because emergency services don’t know where they are or how to access them – this can cost lives, and that’s why it is so important to make sure every defibrillator is registered!

Currently less than 5% of out-of-hospital-cardiac arrests (OHCAs) receive bystander defibrillation.
Tens of thousands of defibrillators are currently not known by ambulance services.
Defibrillators are much more likely to be used if they’re registered.
Knowing a defibrillator’s location can be the difference between life and death.

As soon as someone has a cardiac arrest, the clock starts ticking. If CPR and defibrillation are not performed immediately, their chances of survival are greatly reduced. Defibrillators are often not used because emergency services don’t know where to find them.

This is where The Circuit comes in.

In those crucial moments after a cardiac arrest, The Circuit gives ambulance services vital information about defibrillators across the UK so they can be accessed quickly to help save lives.
