Defibrillator available to the public
4MK has a defibrillator for the general public to use in the
event of sudden cardiac arrest.
*We are located at 37 Sydney Street, Mackay and are open Monday to Friday.*
The Heart180 Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is designed to be used
by anyone, with clear step-by-step voice instructions that can guide
members of the public through the process.
Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Australia, with those who
suffer a sudden cardiac arrest having a 6 per cent chance of survival in
Australia. However early defibrillation can increase survival to 70 per cent.
The Defib is part of 4MK's parent company ARN's
ongoing commitment to providing a safer work environment and continuing to
drive its commitment to being hyperlocal and supporting its local community.
