Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death for thousands of Americans each year. Many communities and health organizations are encouraging legislation to require businesses to have an automated external defibrillator (AED) unit on location and have an AED program in place.
Over 400,000 Americans this year will suffer from this deadly condition. Many will not survive. Children, teenagers, adults and the elderly all can suffer from an SCA. It doesn't matter if they're healthy or unhealthy, rich or poor; sudden cardiac arrest strikes without warning and without treatment most victims end up suffering a sudden cardiac death. The results of an SCA don't have to be disastrous though. Sudden cardiac arrest can be treated and people can survive.
What is AED?
The most important piece of emergency equipment to treat SCA is known as an automated external defibrillator or AED for short. AEDs are portable units that are attached to a victim who has collapsed from ventricular fibrillation (VF, which is when the heart starts to beat erratically and eventually stops beating altogether).
The AED assesses the victim's heart rhythm, or lack thereof, and tells the first responder what is needed. If the heart has stopped beating, the AED will either automatically shock the heart or instruct the first responder to push a button on the AED to deliver a shock. An electric shock is the only way to get the heart beating again. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can help keep blood and oxygen flowing throughout the body and to the brain, but an AED is the only way to get the heart started again. Without a beating heart, the victim will die.
The Defibtech Training Package with Remote (also available without a remote) converts your Defibtech AED into a trainer so that you can train first responders how to react to a sudden cardiac arrest emergency. We also carry the Defibtech Training Battery Charger, the Rechargeable Training Battery Pack and Defibtech Adult and Pediatric Training Pads. The Defibtech Stand Alone Trainer Package comes with all of the above except the Pediatric Pads.
Making sure your AED training program is successful is one of our goals. Once your AED program is in place and everyone is trained, AED brands wants to make sure that you have all the Defibtech AED Accessories you need in case of an SCA emergency. We carry the Defibtech Wall Mount Bracket and Compact AED Wall Cabinets so that you can mount your AED safely and securely on a wall. Adding an AED Wall Display Sign that is Flanged, V-Shape or Flat, or adding Window Static Cling Decals will help ensure that your AED unit is easily visible.
If you choose not to wall mount your automated external defibrillator, AED brands also had several AED carry cases. The Small AED Protective Carry Case is unbreakable, watertight, dustproof, chemical resistant and corrosion proof. The Quicklook AED Portable Backpack comes in red or black, has reflective striping for nighttime safety and is large enough to carry your AED and additional first aid supplies. The Defibtech AED Soft Carrying Case is designed for the Lifeline AED units and AED accessories.
An AED will not work if its battery is dead. Therefore AED brands wants to make sure that you remember to schedule and complete routine maintenance checks on your automated external defibrillator and other first aid supplies. We carry AED Inspection Tags as well as the Defibtech Long-Life DBP-2800 Battery and the Defibtech Standard DBP-1400 Battery. The Long-Life Battery is designed to last 7 years and comes with a 9-volt lithium battery for self-tests. The Standard Battery is designed to last 5 years and also comes with a 9-volt lithium battery.
It's also important to know that automated external defibrillator pads have an expiration date. Again, you must do routine checks on your AED unit and AED accessories to make sure everything's ready in case of a sudden cardiac arrest emergency. You never know, the life you save, may be your own! AED brands carries replacement Defibtech Lifeline AED Adult and Pediatric Pads.
Card Reading Software
After an SCA event has occurred and the victim is being transported to the hospital it's important for the doctors who will be treating the victim to know exactly what transpired during the time the automated external defibrillator was in use. The Defibtech Medium Capacity and Large Capacity Data Cards, and the Defibtech Medium Capacity and Large Capacity Cards with Audio, record the SCA event data that the doctors can use to determine their follow-up care. Pairing the cards with the Defibtech Data Card Reader ensures that the SCA event data will be downloaded properly.
Portable Oxygen Concentrators
To make sure that your AED program is the best it can be, AED brands recommends that you complement your SCA emergency treatment program with an AED Companion Emergency Oxygen unit. This emergency oxygen unit requires no maintenance and no training certification. It can be used to administer supplemental oxygen or used as a resuscitator for mouth to mouth CPR. It's refillable, lightweight, has two flow settings and has an easy to read gauge.
