Defibrillator for East & West Tytherley

A Defibrillator is a self contained device which can help to restart the heart in the case of a serious heart attack (cardiac arrest), but should only be accessed once you have dialled 999 to call for an ambulance.

The machine is located in Pragnell’s Cottages, West Tytherley and is always accessible. It is mounted on a bracket under the stairs of the first block of flats on the right hand side as you go up the steps from the car park, adjacent to West Tytherley Village Shop.

This machine is designed for use by a non expert operator with no experience or training. Once the Ambulance Service is aware that you have access to the machine, they will talk you through how to use it before the Ambulance arrives at the scene.

In the event of a suspected cardiac arrest,  call (or directly ask someone else to call) 999 for an ambulance. If you can, you should then send someone to collect the defibrillator which should be used as soon as possible. Do not leave the patient on their own.
