Philips AED Defibrillators
Philips Healthcare is a worldwide company and has been in the health care business for over 100 years. Not only do they care about the medical needs of people all over the world, but they care about the Earth, as well. For more than thirty years, Philips has implemented and followed EcoVision and EcoDesign policies, as well as making a commitment to designing and manufacturing their products so that they are environmentally friendly and safe.
By choosing a Philips defibrillator for your automated external defibrillator (AED) needs, you have chosen one of the most experienced, reliable, well-respected and versatile brands on the market today. Philips is the leader in portable defibrillator technologies, which is why it is the most commonly used brand by emergency responders, law enforcement and airlines, and why Philips Healthcare also offers a line of home AEDs.
If you choose to purchase an AED for a public gathering place, such as a health club or gym, fitness center or athletic club, office building or sports arena, Philips has the automated external defibrillators you need. Philips also provides clinical training and other programs for first responders. In addition, the company offers health training, such as programs to help SCA victims return to living normal and active lives and courses to help you understand that you don't have to have heart disease to have SCA. The company has placed more than half a million Philips AED units in schools, office buildings and other community gathering places worldwide.
But Philips also knows that just placing the units is not enough. When it comes to teaching people to use an AED, Philips offers a complete program solution that includes site assessment, AED training, management for your data, regulatory support, medical direction and more. They offer a team of dedicated specialists to help ensure that your organization is prepared if someone suffers from sudden cardiac arrest on your property.
Philips Healthcare believes that public areas are not the only places that should be equipped with an automated external defibrillator. Many people equip their homes with fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide detectors, burglar alarms and other such safety and life saving devices. Most of these items will never be used, but in case of emergency, having one available can be the difference between life and death. A home defibrillator is one more peace-of-mind tool designed to help save a life in case of SCA.
Because sudden cardiac arrest can happen without warning, and with no symptoms of heart disease, having an AED nearby is essential. Many times, SCA happens in the home. If ventricular fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythm) occurs, the chances of a person avoiding sudden cardiac death are greatly increased if defibrillation takes place within five minutes or less. Less than 1 in 20 people survive SCA, usually because AEDs are not nearby. Using an AED along with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) greatly increases the chances of a sudden cardiac arrest victim surviving. Using both within the first five minutes of a cardiac attack can mean the difference between returning to a normal and active life, and suffering from minor to devastating neurological problems. Having an AED in your home, like having a fire extinguisher or smoke detector, is essential in helping you protect your health and safety and that of your family and friends.
Philips Healthcare has developed home and public automated external defibrillator units that are safe and easy to use for medical and non-medical personnel alike. Philips is the global leader in AED technology and in providing the tools and services necessary for first responders to help save the life of someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. Choosing to protect yourself and others with the placement of an AED unit in your home or place of business, can help ensure that medical liability issues become non-issues, and that the safety and wellbeing of those around you is taken care of in one of the best ways possible.
