The golf club has a defibrillator and it is situated in the foyer of the main entrance to the golf club
What is a Defibrillator and what’s it for??
Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia. A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current to the heart. Although not fully understood, this process depolarizes a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm. A heart which is in asystole cannot be restarted by a defibrillator, but would be treated by (CPR) cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
The defibrillator is accessible during golfing hours. If the main entrance door has the security lock on, members can still gain entry by using their swipe cards and visitors can gain entry by entering the 4 digit code they are given by the Pro shop into the keypad next to the door.
Members and visitors should note that there are a few times in the year when the golf course is open for play but the clubhouse is locked, eg. restricted opening times in the festive season. Any forthcoming restricted opening times will be publicised in the Friday round-up.
