During the tournament, Phili6s decided to draw attention to first aid issues: the company emphasizes the need to install defibrillators in crowded places (sports facilities, educational institutions, stadiums, shopping centers, airports and train stations).
Every year in the world, from a sudden cardiac arrest, about 7,000,000 people die, of which approximately 200,000 people in Russia. There is only about 10 minutes to save, which is not always enough for an ambulance to arrive. Most patients can avoid death if cardiopulmonary resuscitation using a defibrillator is performed on time. This is necessary to save people who are difficult to reach due to traffic jams, crowded places and so on.
In the days of the championship, Philips, along with the rescuers of the Ministry of Emergencies, conducted first aid training in case of emergency. Participants saw the action of an automatic external defibrillator Philips HeartStart FRx, which provides step-by-step voice instructions to those who assist in sudden cardiac arrest. The device helps you to safely complete every step - from applying electrodes to applying a discharge. Previously, the defibrillator assesses the patient's condition and reminds about the need to call an ambulance. In exceptional situations, the instrument will notify you that “defibrillation is not required” and the “discharge” button will not be activated.
