#TeamArbury purchase defibrillators for all sites

A life-saving addition

At #TeamArbury, we do all we can to protect our staff and customers, and with this in mind, we’re pleased to let you know that we’ve recently purchased defibrillators for all of our dealerships and PDI centres – not only that, but we are also running staff training courses so our team feel comfortable using them, should they need to.

Purchased in conjunction with St John Ambulance, our chosen defibrillators are fully automatic and produced by ZOLL – the UK’s leading supplier of medical devices and software solutions that help advance emergency care and save lives. Read on for further information about Arbury’s invaluable decision to invest in these devices.

What are defibrillators, and why have them at Arbury?

A defibrillator is a portable device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart of someone who’s in cardiac arrest, and it can be used on an adult or indeed anyone over the age of one. In short, early defibrillation is a critical component in treating cardiac arrest.

Did you know that, every year, approximately 55 out of every 100,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest outside of a hospital, with most occurring in the home or workplace? In 7 out of 10 cases, CPR is attempted by a bystander, and in less than 1 out of 10 cases, a public access defibrillator (AED) is reported as being used.

As a bystander performing CPR using an AED, you could boost the casualty’s chances of survival by two to four-fold. The significance of having a defibrillator available is that, by using one before an ambulance arrives, you can vastly increase someone’s chance of survival.

Who can use a defibrillator, and how do they work?

The good news is that anyone can use a defibrillator – they’re simple and easy to use, and you don't need any training.

You’ll find clear instructions in the pack on how to attach the defibrillator pads to the chest, and the device then assesses the casualty’s heart rhythm. It will only instruct you to deliver a jolt if it’s required – don’t worry, as this can’t be done accidentally. If a shock is needed and therefore administered, this can then get the heart beating normally again.

We’re sure you’ll agree that this is a forward-thinking and vital purchase for all Arbury dealerships and PDI centres, and we trust this will provide all customers, team members and the wider community with much-needed peace of mind in the event of such an emergency.

Financial Disclosure

Cathedral Motor Company Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Cathedral Motor Company Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
