Nine in Ten Would Not Use Defibrillator in Life-Threatening Emergency
From: The International Business Times
In the majority of life-threatening emergencies, defibrillators would not be used to help save someone's life.
Research by defibrillator manufacturer Doc UK found that just 15 percent of survey respondents said their workplace had a defibrillator.
Of those who said there was a defibrillator, just 44 percent said they knew how to use it, while 11 percent said that even though they had received training, they would not use it in a genuine emergency because of lack of confidence.
