An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) has been installed in a secure cabinet next to the Tesco Express. This device is for delivering life-saving electric shocks to those suffering from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a heart attack that renders the victim unconscious. While most ambulances are fitted with AEDs, using the device on a SCA victim while waiting for the ambulance to arrive will significantly improve their chances of survival.  The AED has clear instructions and safeguards that prevent improper use. As such, no medical training is required to use an AED. In order to open the secure cabinet, please call 999 or 112 and request the access code and an ambulance dispatch. The Great Shelford Parish Council would like to thank the Shelford Support Group for their generous contribution towards the AED. Click here for more information about how and when to use AEDs.
