Anyone can use these in an emergency but you need to call 999 immediately and if you are near the defibrillator, they will give you the key code to unlock it. If there is a first-aider nearby let them handle the situation as they will been trained appropriately.

The instructions are shown on a screen and spoken. So you are talked through the procedure. Please note for every minute that passes after someone enters cardiac arrest, their survival chance reduces by 10%. So immediate action is required.
