The defibrillator's intended use is for any person who dials 999 and requires life saving assistance.  Another name for defibrillator is 'AED'.

If someone collapses and is unresponsive and not breathing properly, dial 999 and start CPR. 

Once you dial 999 and speak to the ambulance emergency service, the call centre will take details. If they think that a defibrillator is needed, they will then give you the access code to the defibrillator box and further instructions on how to operate it. If possible, give the code to someone else to get the defibrillator while you remain with the collapsed person. Keep speaking to the service on your phone for further advice and information on CPR.

Take the defibrillator to the collapsed person and follow the instructions on the case.

The defibrillator is fully automatic. It also has a switchable young person mode to allow it to be used on children from one year to eight year olds, as well as the standard adult mode. 

The defibrillator is simple to use. Once the green button is pressed, it activates a voice which can be heard giving stage by stage instructions and prompts along with where the pads are to be placed on the casualty.
