Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) - More Info

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the chances of survival for a cardiac arrest victim significantly reduces every minute that the application of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is delayed.

AEDs are essential when attempting to resuscitate a victim of cardiac arrest. Most cardiac arrests occur when the heart goes from a normal pumping rhythm to a chaotic firing of electrical impulses. This causes the heart to quiver uncontrollably and renders it unable to pump blood throughout the body.

Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) manually pumps blood through the heart and brain to keep these organs alive until an AED is available to shock the heart back into a normal pumping rhythm. CPR is a stop-gap life-saving measure, but CPR will not cause the heart to resume a normal pumping rhythm.
