A message from Amy- Managing Director and Owner of Blue Butterfly Studios.

This week we were pleased to receive an Automated External Defibrillator at the studios.

This important life saving equipment was kindly donated to us by Melwood Construction who are a local business who specialise in extensions and refurbishments. They are also brilliant at commercial projects as they were the company who built our lovely studios!🦋

For a long time it has been one of my aims to get an AED at the studios. In 2019 my own Dad had a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. This was a huge shock to our family as my Dad was super fit and healthy.

It was thanks to my Mum who called 999 so quickly and the first responders who were with my Dad within minutes that he is still with us today❤️

An AED is a type of computerized defibrillator that automatically analyzes the heart rhythm in people who are experiencing cardiac arrest. When appropriate, it delivers an electrical shock to the heart to restore its normal rhythm.

Fewer than 1 in 10 people survive an out of hospital cardiac arrest and only around 7% survive to hospital discharge. For every minute that defibrillation is delayed the chance of survival decreases by 10%.😞

If a defibrillator is used within the first minute of a cardiac arrest occurring, the survival rate for victims can be as high as 90%🙏🏻

David from Melwood Constructed says ‘I knew how important it was for Amy to have an AED on site. She was hoping to fundraise for one so we wanted to help her achieve her goal. This vital piece of equipment will not only make the studio a safer place but also the local community too.

The AED is now registered on The Circuit which is The National Defibrillator Database. This means that anyone in the community can use it if needed.

If some good can come of the emotional experience of nearly losing my Dad and someone’s life can be saved with this AED then that would mean the world to me🤍

A BIG THANK YOU to David and Melwood Construction 🙏🏻
