NGOs appeal for sporting events to be equipped with First Aid devices

The Malta Resuscitation Council and The Red Cross Society have said that in the case of the player who suffered a heart attack two days ago, the immediate action of paramedics and those present, as well as the use a defibrillator, proved invaluable.

The NGOs said that after a heart attack, compressions on the chest and the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) were life-saving, and the most important factors to save a human life, followed by the speed with which a patient is taken to hospital.

That is why the NGOs have appealed to all Sports Clubs to encourage their members to train in first aid, including the use of the AED, and to have such a device at any sporting event, even while training.
