Resuscitation Council (UK)


National database of AED use

The Resuscitation Council (UK) has been collecting AED use data since 1999 and published initial results in 'Resuscitation 2008 78 275-280' and a further report covering the latest analysis of almost 3500 reports.

The Resuscitation Council (UK) no longer supplies or collects the AED event form that has been in use. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest remains an important priority for the Resuscitation Council (UK) and it has established a national out-of-hospital database with the British Heart Foundation and Association of Ambulance Medical Directors in partnership with the University of Warwick. This audit also captures the events where a public access AED has been used before the arrival of the ambulance crew via a reusable and easily accessible new online event form.
