What is AFE?
AFE stands for Association of Spanish Footballers, and is an association created in the year 1978 to the service of the collective of soccer players and that promotes their union, watches over the normal development of its sport race and later labor promotion, defending and guaranteeing the labor rights, economic, formative, social, present and futures, transmitting sports values to its members and society. Among the components of its board of directors is Sergio Busquets or David De Gea among other great footballers.
The defibrillators supplied are the Zoll AED Plus, a 4th generation semi-automatic external defibrillator
The ZOLL AED Plus is the only external defibrillator equipped with Real CPR Help technology, an external defibrillator that helps you perform high-quality CPR. Therefore, it makes it the defibrillator that works for all cardiac arrests (those with a shockable rhythm, those that need a "spark" and those that are not shockable). Thanks to the sensor of the pads, it provides information to the device about each chest compression and informs the rescuer if it has done well. The defibrillator guides the rescuer using prompts and a real-time gauge bar to achieve the recommended compression depth and rate.
Delivery of the defibrillators to all the clubs of First, Second, Second B and Third Division both male and female, today delivered defibrillators of clubs of the Community of Madrid.
We carried out a demonstration of the use of defibrillators and CPR maneuvers, explanations and characteristics of the defibrillation devices supplied.
