The external automatic defibrillator (DAE) is a life-saving device that automatically diagnoses the cardiac arrhythmias and delivers life-saving electrical impulses to the heart. In Rijeka, 8 external automatic defibrillators have been installed in the following locations:

  • Police administration of the PGŽ County (Žrtava fašizma sq. No 3),
  • Croatian Railways (King Tomislav sq. No 1),
  • Youth Hall (Viktor Bubanj sq. No 1)
  • “Centar” pharmacy (Riva No 18)
  • Swimming pool complex Kantrida (Podkoludrica No 2)
  • Zamet Centre (Bože Vidasa bb)
  • City of Rijeka (Korzo No 16)
  • City of Rijeka (Tito sq. No. 3)

It is important to remember that in the event of sudden cardiac arrest seconds and minutes are important, and this time is at our disposal. Therefore, the City Department of Health and Social Welfare, in cooperation with the First Aid Institute of the PGŽ County, has organised a cardiopulmonary resuscitation course with the use of the automatic defibrillator for 25 employees of the city administration and its utility company “Rijeka sport”.
