Are our professional footballers tested as part of full medical for genetic heart disorders? I’m genuinely shocked they don’t have them, but have them in most other public places They'll be badly needed with the amount of vac side effects coming down the road I mean... It's one guy. If it happened at every other match then fair enough... But its one guy. Let's just calm down before we start bubble wrapping the pitch in fear of anyone scraping their knee. I'm surprised medics aren't always at matches with that kind of equipment anyway.
You would have thought the medics on hand at games already had them. Not only players have heart attacks at games. I’m pretty sure the paramedics on site where I go to games have it available. Agree Theure needed in a lot more places as well as stadiums. And there should be adverts with info on how to use them and how to give CPR. Just like there is against smoking and drinking health concearns. Do something educational.
Thought there were b it perm feature or with the Medic team. I thought they were at every Ground after Stokes Captain Clive Clarke had an Episode on the Pitch a few Years ago Let's make this happen. Let's make sure it doesn't happen again. Let's make sure that fans, players and staff are safe and protected and assured that they will be safe. LET'S MAKE THAT HAPPEN!

Aren't they already there? I think they are. They're all around the country in old phone boxes. Surely in 2021 there is a defib at every ground? There’s one in every village and scout hut I know of! Why haven’t they already got them at every ground already?
