Defibrillator at Björkbacken’s Character Hotel

Björkbacken’s Character Hotel has installed a defibrillator.

There are defibrillators available at several locations in Vimmerby. Prior to the installation of the defibrillator at the Character Hotel there were four other defibrillators registered in the Vimmerby Defibrillator Register. You attach the electrodes to the patient’s chest and an electric shock is then sent via those electrodes and through the heart to try to get the heart to start beating normally again. The amount of time that elapses prior to the first defibrillation is critical to a person’s chances of survival after their heart has stopped beating. According to the Swedish Resuscitation Council, the chances of survival are reduced by 10 per cent for each minute that passes prior to the first defibrillation. Ideally, defibrillation should occur within three minutes of the heart having stopped beating.
