Here's the defibrillator and the ambulance is on it's way, I'm going back to the gate so that I can show them where you are.
Applying the Pads
I know how to use our clubs defibrillator, I'm going to apply the pads to Kevin’s bare chest. they need to go on his upper right upper chest and left lower chest. Ben, continue CPR whilst I put the pads on then stop when the AED says so that it can analyse Kevin's rhythm.

It's saying “shock required, charging" Ben, carry on with the CPR whilst it's charging we need to wait for the flashing red button.
It's saying “stand clear" Ben you need to stop CPR so that I can press the flashing red button,.
To maximise the chances of the resuscitation being successful the AED had to be applied straight away. Switch on the defibrillator and followed the voice prompts.
Signs of Life
Signs of life are Player takes spontaneous breath Normal breathing is >10/min, initial signs of life may not initially be 10/min you may have to continue to supplement with rescue breathing in between their own breaths Their chest rises and falls They attempt to cough They make voluntary movements They open their eyes
If a shock is advised the discharge button will flash, the AED will prompt you saying ‘shock advised’. Ask the person performing CPR to stop It is important to look and check that you nor any other rescuer is touching the player. Shout “stand clear”, once you are sure no one is touching the player discharge the button – the shock will be given.
Welcome back Kevin, you're ok, the paramedics are on their way.
After the shock has been given, restart CPR immediately. The AED will automatically re-analyse after 2-minutes Continue until the ambulance arrives and takes over or the player recovers
