Representatives from three local Rotary Clubs, Sunderland, SR1 and Wearside attended a Seaburn Rotary Club meeting to hear a presentation by St John Ambulance on dealing with heart attacks. Andrew Horsely and Colin Jameson, from St John, explained that cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime and the chance of survival falls by about 10% for each minute that passes without resuscitation. A demonstration of manual resuscitation was given. Alternatively resuscitation can be by a machine called a defibrillator, which delivers a dose of electric current to the heart to stimulate recovery. No special knowledge is required to operate a defibrillator. At the end of the evening Keith Higgin, of Seaburn Club, presented the St John representatives with a cheque for £1,000 on behalf of the four Rotary Clubs represented to assist in the purchase of a defibrillator.Andrew Horsely explained that the defibrillator will be a very useful backup to a St John team when they on public events duties or called to an emergency.
