"Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the Number One Killer in the US"
According to the American Heart Association, approximately 300,000 dying every year in the US. SCA can strike anyone, anytime, anywhere and most often with no signs, symptoms or warning. There are many causes for SCA, and many of these deaths are preventable.
An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. Using an AED on a victim of SCA buys valuable time until paramedical or hospital care is available.
