Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Guide to Public Access Defibrillators

PAD Guidance

Scotland is committed to improving the response to, and survival rates after, Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest (OHCA).

The overarching aim of Scotland’s OHCA Strategy is for Scotland to become a world leader in response to OHCA by 2020.

A range of organisations, businesses, clubs, groups and communities across Scotland have already installed an Automated External Defibrillator. Many make them publicly available and to the emergency services: such Public Access Defibrillators (PADs) are key to strengthening community readiness to respond to an OHCA.

This guide aims to outline key things that individuals and communities should consider before purchasing and installing a PAD.
