AED Buyer's Guide
Why do I need an AED machine for my location?
Approximately 350,000 Americans will experience a life-threatening condition each year called sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). This condition is fatal if it’s not treated within ten minutes. However, traditional first aid, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), isn’t enough if the victim is suffering SCA or sudden cardiac arrest, or the sudden interruption of the heart’s electrical activity resulting in an abnormal rhythm called ventricular fibrillation or ‘VF’. If VF is not corrected by defibrillating (shocking) the heart with an automated external defibrillator (AED), the heart will not recover and the victim will die.
Nearly 1,000 people in the United States die of Sudden Cardiac Arrest each day. SCA is unpredictable and can strike anyone, including young, old, male, female, even healthy athletes.
Because of this, an AED is recommended for any facility where people gather in large numbers. In addition, anyone who is at high risk of cardiovascular issues should have an AED in case of an emergency.
