The cooperative acquires two defibrillators for its facilities and gives a training course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation among its workers
La Seca (Valladolid), October 5, 2018.- Bodega Cuatro Rayas, in its intention to safeguard the health and well-being of its partners and workers, has acquired two semi-automatic external defibrillators and has given a training course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation among several of its employees. In this way, the cooperative joins the “Lifeguard Project” initiative and becomes a cardioprotected space.
One of the acquired equipment has been installed in the offices of the Cuatro Rayas winery, while the other has been located in the traditional winery facilities. The training course in the use of these devices and in cardiopulmonary recovery in general, has been given to 7 members of the staff, while a second training is planned for another 8 people for next year. These trainings require renewal and recycling every 2 years, since the field of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the mechanisms and tools to deal with it are constantly evolving.
ANEK S3, the company from which the two defibrillation devices come and which has provided the aforementioned training, is the main distributor and enhancer of cardioprotection services in our country. These defibrillators are already present in large areas such as factories, large companies, football stadiums, athletics tracks, sports centers, schools, universities or shopping centers.
Cardiopulmonary problems claim the lives of thousands of people around the world each year. The existence of semi-automatic defibrillators for non-healthcare personnel in public places, as well as training in basic cardiopulmonary recovery techniques, save a high percentage of people who suffer cardiac arrest. To reach this goal, the defibrillator must be used within the first 4 minutes.
The “Lifeguard Project” is a social initiative that aims to make the non-health public aware of the importance of having a healthier life, of the need to learn resuscitation and first aid techniques, as well as to achieve a greater implantation of semi-automatic defibrillators.
