Leeds Rhinos have partnered with CorMed-DX Ltd to double the amount of life-saving defibrillators on site on a Rhinos match night at Headingley. The Rhinos currently have nine permanent defibrillators on site every day of the week but now the new partnership with see the world-first personal defibrillator, CellAEDavailable for use at the stadium.
CorMed-DX Ltd is working with Rapid Response Revivalas an authorised re-seller of CellAED , the world-first personal defibrillator, created to make AEDs (automated external defibrillators) affordable and easy to use for people with no medical training. Weighing just 300 grams and the size of a bar of chocolate, CellAED can be carried with you or stored very easily.
Sudden cardiac arrest is the world’s biggest cause of premature death, killing between seven and nine million people every year. This is similar to the lives lost from all cancers combined.
More than 80 per cent of sudden cardiac arrests occur in the home. Before now, AEDs have been too expensive to be a realistic option for the households of people at risk of sudden cardiac arrest, and too complicated to use.
The unique CellAEDSnap Peel Stick™ design allows the AED to be applied in seconds, buying time to save lives from sudden cardiac arrest. These achievements will improve the availability of defibrillators where it’s needed most – in our homes, businesses and communities.
Rapid defibrillation is the only effective treatment for sudden cardiac arrest. An AED applied within minutes of a sudden cardiac arrest buys the patient time until emergency services arrive. For every minute without defibrillation and CPR, the chances of being revived following a cardiac arrest drops 10 per cent.
and as a lifelong Leeds Rhinos fan I am so pleased to see these leading-edge devices get placed around Headingley,” said Craig Hall, MD and Founder of CorMed-DX.
Leeds Rhinos Commercial Director Rob Oates added, “We are delighted to welcome CorMed-DX Ltd as a new partner to the club and we are privileged to be one of the first venues in the UK to benefit from the brilliantto help protect our visitors to Headingley Stadium.”
