What Is An AED

 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Each year, it is estimated that over 300,000 Americans suffer from sudden cardiac arrest or SCA. Many of the victims of sudden cardiac arrest die because they fail to receive the proper assistance or help. Victims can be young, old, healthy or unhealthy.

While there is no age limit or health category defining all potential victims of sudden cardiac arrest, research has proven that it can be survivable. With the proper usage of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), more than 30 percent of victims have a better chance to survive.

What is an AED used for?

AED or Automatic External Defibrillator is a medical computerized device that analyzes the rhythm of the heart. If irregular life threatening patterns (cardiac arrhythmias) are found, it sends out an alert that defibrillation is required. Defibrillation is an electrical shock that is delivered to the heart in order to re-generate an effective rhythm.

For the family, the AED is the perfect defibrillator for home use. Its use of voice responses, lights and text messages advises the rescuer/family member on the appropriate steps that need to be taken in order to potentially save a life. It is safe to use by any person that is properly trained.

Who needs an AED?

AED’s are recommended for placement in businesses as a precaution and aid for injured workers. The American Heart Association also recommends that AED’s be placed in the home for home defibrillator usage. Any persons that have certain types of heart diseases or have a 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. For more information, please contact the American Heart Association in your local area or by visiting the website. Make it your mission to save lives!
