40 practice defibrillators for the Johanniter

Kers­ten Enke, Di­vi­sio­nal Ma­na­ger for Edu­ca­ti­on at the Jo­han­ni­ter As­so­cia­ti­on of Lower Sa­x­o­ny/Bre­men, and An­dre­as Wendt, Re­gio­nal Trai­ning Ma­na­ger for Bre­men/Ver­den, were de­ligh­ted to re­cei­ve 40 prac­tice PRI­ME­DIC de­fi­bril­la­tors from Me­trax GmbH, which were pre­sen­ted by Gerd Ler­bin­ger, Area Sales Ma­na­ger North. The de­vices are used in the five re­gio­nal as­so­cia­ti­ons of the Jo­han­ni­ter As­so­cia­ti­on of Lower Sa­x­o­ny/Bre­men. At the be­gin­ning of the year, the com­mon prin­ci­ples of trai­ning aid or­ga­ni­sa­ti­ons for first aid, first aid trai­ning and basic life sup­port cour­ses were ex­ten­ded to in­clu­de the learning ob­jec­tives of "de­fi­bril­la­ti­on by first ai­ders". With the in­clu­si­on of this topic into their ca­ta­lo­gue of con­tent and learning ob­jec­tives, the Jo­han­ni­ter are com­ply­ing with in­ter­na­tio­nal emer­gen­cy me­di­cal fin­dings and re­com­men­da­ti­ons in order to fur­ther spre­ad know­ledge about the in­cor­po­ra­ti­on of a (co­in­ci­den­tal­ly) avail­able AED into re­susci­ta­ti­on mea­su­res. As a re­sult, the prin­ciple of de­fi­bril­la­ti­on is now taught in all first aid cour­ses.
