AED & Equipment Info

Gareth Jenkin started AED Locations after teaching thousands of people how to use CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators). During training sessions, he was often asked about AED locations. He knew that there were a lot of publicly available AEDs, but realised that they were worthless if people didn’t know where they were.

People were dying within 50 metres of an AED because no one knew it was there.

Publishing AED locations online would make it easier to find them in an emergency, but Gareth lacked the money and the technological know-how to make it happen. After The Listener ran a story on heart attacks and AEDs, Abletech approached Gareth to help.

An AED can increase someone’s chance of survival by up to 80% if applied immediately.

Over 9,000 locations are now mapped on this website and the Android and iPhone apps.

Testimonial
Tahunanui Medical Centre have had great experiences with Resus Nelson. Natalie and Rosie have come to our practice on two occasions and facilitated multidisciplinary emergency scenarios. Natalie & Rosie’s senses of humour and their awesome knowledge have made all staff feel included and valued, from the GP with extensive Emergency experience to the newest Receptionist (with a genuine fear of getting things wrong!). Together we have come up with realistic, relevant scenarios peculiar to our premises, patients, staff ratios and geographical location. We all hate role play but somehow Natalie and Rosie make us feel comfortable. After each session we have found new things to improve within the practice, from a new emergency incident record sheet to furniture placement. Not only do these sessions tick the box for Cornerstone, they are great team building experience with genuine relevance and a huge amount of laughter, these sessions have built increasing trust between staff and have demonstrated how capable all staff members can be in stressful situations.  We will definitely continue to use Natalie and Rosie. - Sarah Hobbs, Practice Manager, Tahunanui Medical Centre
