Sudden cardiac death kills hundreds of thousands of Americans each year. In fact, over 1,000 people today will suffer a sudden cardiac arrest and if an AED is not near and used within ten minutes or less, many of these SCA victims will die. Time is crucial when dealing with SCA. For every minute that passes without treatment, the victim’s chances of surviving go down by ten percent. AED brands’ mission is to make sure that the majority of sudden cardiac arrest victims survive and go on to live productive and happy lives.
Edgar Aviles, a 13-year old boy, from Las Cruces, New Mexico knows this all too well. On Monday afternoon, July 19, 2010, Edgar was working out with his trainer at World Gym. Edgar had finished his five minute warm up and stopped to get a drink. When his trainer, Oscar Carranza, told him it was time to get started again, Edgar stood up and immediately collapsed. When Carranza got to him, he noticed that Edgar wasn’t breathing, he had no pulse and was already starting to turn blue. Jordan Ramirez, who had just received his cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification the week before, rushed over to help. He began CPR; within three minutes the EMTs arrived with an AED. They immediately hooked it up and shocked Edgar. He regained consciousness and was soon transported to the hospital. Edgar was lucky; sometimes EMTs don’t get to SCA victims in time. Many gyms, health clubs and fitness centers have started carrying their own AEDs and training staff on their use. Edgar is expected to make a full recovery.

Importance Of Having An AED Program
So what is sudden cardiac arrest? SCA is an interruption to the heart’s ability to pump blood. It can strike anyone, anywhere. SCA has no regard for age, economic or social status. It strikes children, teenagers, adults and the elderly. SCA can be caused by a blow to the chest during a sporting activity, or it can be caused by genetic defects; two of which are Long QT Syndrome and Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. Sometime SCA happens for unexplained reasons. But whatever the case, SCA is deadly and it needs to be treated immediately.
When the heart’s function is interrupted and it begins to beat erratically, it goes into ventricular fibrillation (VF). The victim soon loses consciousness, collapses and stops breathing. Left untreated, the victim will die from sudden cardiac death. CPR can help, but only to keep oxygen and blood circulating to the brain, lungs and heart. Defibrillation, or a shock to the heart, is needed to get the heart restarted and restore normal rhythm. An automated external defibrillator is needed, and is the only thing that can stop VF.
