New Difibrillators in Rural Ambulances

Rural Victorians suffering from cardiac arrest will benefit from a multi-million dollar roll-out of new life-saving equipment in country ambulances. Health Minister Daniel Andrews said all rural and regional ambulances are now fitted with the latest state-of-the-art defibrillators. The new defibrillators will benefit paramedics and patients with improved technology and a more rapid delivery of a shock in the event of a cardiac arrest.
