Choosing to purchase an automated external defibrillator (AED) for your health club, gym, fitness center, office building, school or other public gathering place is an important first step in ensuring that the people who frequent these areas are provided with the best basic life support in the case of sudden cardiac arrest. Choosing where to place the AED is the next important step. The AED needs to be highly visible and easily accessible so that emergency medical services can be performed as soon as possible. When it comes to SCA, every minute counts.
For an automated external defibrillator that is going to be placed in a permanent location, such as a classroom or an office, buying an AED cabinet is a logical choice. An AED wall cabinet can be placed in a highly visible location that is easily accessible and close enough to the population it is meant to serve. AED cabinets can place the defibrillator on display so that everyone in the building is aware of where it is, while also keeping it out of the way and secure from those who might be tempted to tamper with the device (especially in a classroom situation).
AED In Case of SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest)
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, no matter what his or her age or physical health is. Children, young adults, middle-aged and elderly people can all experience SCA, and if left untreated for as few as five minutes, severe brain damage can occur. If left untreated for up to ten minutes, death almost always occurs. That’s why AED Brands encourages every public gathering place to have an automated external defibrillator on hand.
Portable AED Cabinet
An AED cabinet is crucial to have when you purchase an AED defibrillator that is meant to be in one accessible location. An AED cabinet will not only give you the security of knowing where the defibrillator is at all times; it will also keep the defibrillator safe from prying hands. By keeping your automated external defibrillator in a safe and secure location, you can be confident that if tragedy strikes, you have the proper equipment safely stored in an accessible location. Nothing can provide more security than knowing that if you are ever faced with a sudden cardiac arrest situation, you are prepared.
