Using a Defibrillator does not increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission and it could save a life!
L2BH devices remain ‘rescue ready’ across Scotland. There's no risk to you in getting help and calling ‘999’. There's no risk to you in bringing the defib to the scene and, if you are able/willing to get more involved, there are easy precautions you can take.
Resuscitation Council UK have looked at the risk of COVID-19 transmission during resuscitation and concluded that: "the risk is very small and is set against the inevitability that a person in cardiac arrest will die if no assistance is given.”
