AED Benefits

Sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 450,000 Americans each year, making it the #1 heath care problem and leading cause of death in the United States. Even a seemingly healthy person can suffer cardiac arrest without warning. Sudden cardiac arrest is truly a public health crisis however, unlike other health problems of this magnitude, sudden cardiac arrest is treatable.

The cure for most cases of sudden cardiac arrest is immediate treatment with a defibrillator, a devise that shocks the heart out of a fatal rhythm, allowing a normal healthy rhythm to resume. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), each minute of delay in delivering a defibrillation shock to a cardiac arrest victim reduces the chances of survival by 10 percent, so in order to be effective, defibrillation treatment must be administered within the first few minutes of sudden cardiac arrest.
