Sometimes in the blink of an eye a person could be facing a life or death situation, cardiac arrest strikes and the persons heart stops functioning correctly. From that moment the clock is ticking, every second counts and their chance of revival gets less.


it's then a race to get medical professionals there as quickly as possible with the hope that someone nearby in the meantime would know CPR. You see defibrillators have existed for a while but they could only be operated by skilled medical professionals. This all changed with the invention of PADs (Public Access Defibrillators). Medical professional weren't required anymore, all that was needed was someone who could follow instructions and attach the device to the patient. The intelligence of when and how to shock the heart back into action was built into the defibrillator itself.


What was needed was a way of quickly getting defibrillators to patents, so a nationwide network was started. They appearied in workplaces and public spaces like airports, shopping centres, community centres, and train stations for example. What you see here is one of the more unique locations, inside an old telephone box. With the increasing use of mobile phones, British Telecom, who owes the boxes, decided to sell (minus the telephone) ones not being used. Communities turned them into infomation points, into small libraries or galleries and this one, right in the heart of a community, into a home for a public access defibrillator.
