Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States. Per OSHA, each year over 10,000 sudden cardiac arrests emergencies occur while victims are at work.
95% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before they reach the hospital. However if CPR and an AED are provided within the first critical moments it increases the survival rate by 60%. The average ambulance takes 8-12 minutes to arrive on scene. Placing AEDs in the workplace, along with providing a proper training for employees on how to use the devices, can mean the difference between life and death.
What is an AED?
It is a medical device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm. If necessary, it delivers an electrical shock, known as defibrillation, which helps the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and at any age. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background.
