5 of the Most Common Defibrillator Myths Busted

People are often confused by the facts surrounding CPR and defibrillation. Thanks to lack of public knowledge and Hollywood exaggeration, many people believe myths about defibrillator use that simply aren’t true. Others are unsure as to what defibrillators do and how they help people who are suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

It’s so important for people to understand the importance of CPR and defibrillators, as there are approximately 30,000 Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrests per year in the UK, and they can affect people of any age, at any time. The current rate of initial bystander CPR in England is reported to be around 43%, which means over half the UK population would be unsure what to do if someone suffered SCA in front of them.

In the below infographic, defibshop[1] has taken a look at the five of the most common myths surrounding defibrillators, including whether or not you can hurt someone by performing CPR or using a defibrillator on them, and the types of training needed to use a defibrillator.
