AED Defibrillators

Portable Defibrillators: When Seconds Count

Even for medical professionals, an AED machine can be an invaluable tool; many hospitals even have portable defibrillators on hand. This is because sudden cardiac arrest can occur at any time and to anyone, including children and people who are in excellent health. Because of their light, portable designs, AED machines allow anyone to perform life-saving measures wherever they are placed. And because they can be placed in wall cabinets, they are unobtrusive but easily accessible.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart fibrillates, meaning that the rhythm of heart has been disrupted and is beating in an uncontrollable, chaotic way. The victim will lose consciousness very quickly and death will occur if the person is not treated right away. The heart will begin to die at the rate of 10 percent per minute, which means that death can occur in as few as ten minutes! Permanent brain damage can occur in five minutes, and every second thereafter, the chances of brain damage increase. Having a portable defibrillator available to first responders gives them a huge advantage in not only saving the life of an SCA victim, but also determining whether or not that life will continue normally, or if it will be impaired by neurological problems or, tragically, in a vegetative state. 

One thing to keep in mind is that sudden cardiac arrest episodes and heart attacks are not the same thing. A heart attack can trigger an SCA, but not the other way around. A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to a part of the heart muscle is interrupted by a blockage in an artery or arteries. Learning the difference is vital, because a person suffering from cardiac arrest literally has only minutes to live. That’s why having a portable defibrillator in a strategic, highly visible place in locations where large numbers of people congregate is a good idea. The peace of mind that comes to those who own or lease those buildings, as well as to those who frequent them, cannot be measured. Knowing that basic life support measures can be taken by a trained AED first responder can increase the comfort level of the businesses that occupy these locations by potentially decreasing their medical liability issues.

AED Machines: Federal Law & Grants

In the year 2000, President Bill Clinton signed the Federal Cardiac Arrest Survival Act, which is now Public Law 106-505, regarding the placement of automated external defibrillators in federal buildings. In 2002, President George Bush signed into law the Community Access to Emergency Devices Act, which authorizes federal grants to states and localities that apply to purchase and place AED units in places where the public is likely to gather. These grants can also be used to train first responders on the use of AED devices and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). The law also encourages private companies to purchase automated defibrillators and to train their employees in external defibrillator and CPR procedures. These laws will protect those acting in good faith, as a Good Samaritan, building owner or renter, from unfair lawsuits that may arise from the purchase or use of an AED machine to save a person’s life during sudden cardiac arrest.
