In case of cardiac arrest it is crucial to start cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) right away. In this moment you are the most important link in the chain that saves lives.
If the person is unconscious and does not breathe normally, call 1-1-3 and start with CPR.
Remember that when it comes down to it it is impossible to fail when using the device! When you turn the defibrillator on, a Norwegian voice will give you simple instructions and all you have to do is follow these.
- Take the defibrillator out of the closet (an alarm will go off).
- In buildings with a reception:
- Inform about where the defibrillator will be used. They will ensure to notify 113 and the security guards
- In buildings without reception:
- Make sure somebody calls 113
- Make sure someone calls the security guards tel. 40911000 and informs them about where you are. Someone has to go and meet the ambulance and show the way.
- Press the green button to start the defibrillator.
