During a cardiac emergency, you need to move to quickly and having signs point the way to the nearest defibrillator could save valuable time.
Suitable for both indoors and outdoors, wall signs are a great way of highlighting where the nearest defibrillator or first aid kit is located. Not only are they vital in the event of an emergency but they allow regular visitors to know where the equipment is located for future reference.
3D Wall Signs
After you’ve bought your life saving defibrillator, it’s always a good idea to buy some signs which highlight where you’re storing the unit, ready for the event of an emergency.
Storing the unit in a wall mount or cabinet is a great idea and adding a 3D Wall Sign can help with the rescue process as the first responder or emergency services are able to locate the device quickly and efficiently.
The sign stands out from the building surface and indicates in both directions that there is a defibrillator present in that particular location. These are great for locations which attract large crowds and the signs can be seen from more than one angle unlike a flat surface sign.
Why a Wall Sign can help
When someone suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, they need quick and effective emergency treatment. For every minute that passes by they lose approximately 10% of their chances of survival.
If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is performed inside 5 minutes, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%. If the rescue process is performed in less than 60 seconds, survival chances increase to 90%.
It is imperative that a defibrillator is located as fast as possible and having a Wall Sign will undoubtedly inform people that there is a defibrillator present.
