Cardiac Arrest (Responder) Scenario

You are on CFR cover when your phone alerts to a response required in the local area. The phone rings and control are on the other end giving you details of a cardiac arrest. The address is 5 minutes down the road. Control advises you that the nearest Ambulance resource will be 12 minutes away. 

You respond to the address. On arrival you are waved into the house. You enter with your response bag and AED. There is a 62-year-old male on the ground with chest compressions ongoing by another adult. They explained that their dad had developed chest pain and wasn’t looking too good. He then collapsed and then stopped breathing. They called 999 and have been doing chest compressions since.
