Defibrillators (AED)

If a person’s heart has stopped there is only a short period to enable a recovery and emergency services need to be contacted immediately. CPR will keep blood moving and get air into the lungs. An AED can also help. An AED or difibrillator is a portable device that assesses a person’s heart rhythm. It decides whether a defibrillation shock is needed and will apply it. The AED uses voice or visual prompts to guide a user; anyone can use an AED – you don’t have to be medically qualified, but obviously training helps, as does any basic first aid training. Knowing where a defibrillator is located is a great start. In the Port Underwood area they are located at:

Waikawa Bay launching ramp – External cabinet opposite playground 24/7 access.

633 Port Underwood Rd, Picton – variable access call, 03 573 5599

Hakana Bay – variable access, call 021 318 622

2454 Port Underwood Rd, Ocean Bay – variable access, call 0221 306 508

Rarangi fire station – no public access, call 111

There are over 100 AEDs in Blenheim and 40 in the Picton area. To find an AED, you can find them at https://www.heartsaver.co.nz/know-find-nearest-aed/and it is believed you can download an app as well.
