Welcome to Defibrillator For Home
Each year, it is estimated that over 300,000 Americans suffer from sudden cardiac arrest or CSA. Many of the victims of sudden cardiac arrest may die without the proper assistance or help. Victims can be young, old, healthy or unhealthy. There is no age limit or health category to be potential victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Research has proven that if AED or Automatic External Defibrillator is used, more than 30 percent of victims may survive. Let’s learn more about AED, CPR and your protected rights.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest, a short circuit of the heart's electrical system that causes chaos in the rhythm of the heart can occur at any time, in any place, and to any one. The heart in this case essentially needs to be re-booted back into a normal rhythm. While CPR is essential, in this case a jolt from a defibrillator may be required to get the heart rhythm back to normal. The dilemma is that the window of opportunity is short and in most cases if an electric jolt has not been delivered within the first 10 minutes, chances are high the patient will die.
Today, because of the need for quick action, many schools, arenas, planes and other public venues have an on-site Automated External Defibrillator or AED. However, it is believed that approximately 80% of cardiac deaths occur in the home. This is where an automated defibrillator could potentially save thousands of lives. If you are or a loved one is part of a high risk group (high blood pressure, smoker...), an AED may be a lifesaver.
AED or Automatic External Defibrillator is a medical computerized device that analyzes the rhythm of the heart that sends out an alert if defibrillation is required. It advises medical teams or rescuers if and when a shock is needed. Defibrillation or electrical shock is delivered to the heart re-generating an effective rhythm. AED uses voice responses, lights and text messages to advise the medical team or rescuer appropriate steps to take. It is safe to use by any person that is properly trained.
AED’s are recommended for placement in businesses as a pre-caution and aid for injured workers. The American Heart Association recommends that AED's be placed in the home for home defibrillator usage. Any persons that have certain types of heart diseases or at high risk for cardiac arrest should have an AED nearby. AED can help save lives anywhere an emergency occurs. For individual purchase, it may or may not be necessary to obtain a prescription from a licensed physician.
