‘If you suspect someone has had a cardiac arrest,every second counts’


Richard Wright and Campbell Laing with the Lochranza defibrillator

Arran’s first public access defibrillator was recently unveiled at Kildonan Hall.

Now a second of these amazing life-saving machines has been attached to the front wall of the Lochranza distillery.

Fiona Laing of North Arran First Responders has taken it upon herself to get as many of these vital units around the island as possible.

She told the Banner:‘For every minute that a patient in cardiac arrest is denied the use of a defibrillator,their chance of survival decreases by 10 percent.

‘If you suspect someone has had a cardiac arrest,every second counts.’
