AED's - Automated External Defibrillators

 

Caring about the safety and well being of your employees is good business 
 

Automated external defibrillators (AED's) can help solve the number one killer in America, Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), killing somewher between 350,000 and 450,000 people a year. It can strike anyone, anywhere, at any time, and in most cases, without warning.

 

More people die from SCA than from breast cancer, prostate cancer, house fires, hand guns, traffic accidents and AIDS combined. Over 1,000 people a day, once approximately every 2 minutes someone dies from SCA.

 

Without AED shock treatment, victims have only minutes to live. With quick response, this condition is readily treatable with survival rates well over 50%.

Unfortunately, most of the time, the necessary life-saving automated external defibrillation shock does not arrive in time. As a result, typical survival rates are only 2%-5%.

Now there is something you can do to improve the odds dramatically for your customers and employees with a solution that is easy to use and inexpensive to buy. We offer the Cardiac Science PowerheartDefibtech Lifeline, Philips Heartstart, Heartsine Samaratin PAD and the Zoll AED Plus defibrilators.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by chaotic electrical activity in the heart and can only be treated with an electric shock called defibrillation.

 

Recent advances in modern technology, along with legislative support from federal and state governments, have made a solution available to the public. Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) are this life-saving solution.

Businesses not only provide services to countless customers, but also have to care for their employees. Given the number of people present and the considerable amount of time and activity spent at work, the risk of someone suffering cardiac arrest at your facility is very real. Durable, cost-effective, low-maintenance, and easy-to-use. AEDs are perfectly suited for the unique needs of the business environment.

The bottom line is that with a modest investment, now you too can save a life.

 

Facts:

  • The price of an AED varies by make and model and continues to decline. Most AEDs cost under $2,000.
  • For every minute that passes without defibrillation, a victim’s chances of survival decrease by 7–10 percent.  
  • Even the very best EMS systems experience delays from heavy traffic, secured buildings, gated communities, large building complexes and high-rises.  In New York City, where emergency response teams fight extreme traffic, the average arrival time for emergency vehicles is about 12 minutes.  The cardiac arrest survival rate there is less than 2 percent.
