Defibrillators in public places scheme

18th July 2008

According to research carried out at Cardiff University, a national scheme which has placed defibrillators in public areas has been "a great success".

The British Heart Foundation has provided the funding for the devices to be placed in places such as leisure centres and airports. A man who was saved by a defibrillator at his local pool said: "Without that defibrillator I would have died - they should be in all public places."
