AED Fact Sheet

Automated external defibrillators or AEDs are by far more influential on the survival rate of cardiac arrest patients than CPR.

Defibrillation is most effective immediately following a cardiac arrest episode. The average EMS response time is 11 minutes while brain damage generally occurs within the first five minutes. This means having a public access AED readily available can be the difference between life and death.

AED Placement

locations. AEDs can be kept in wall

for easy transportation.

Did you know that cardiac arrest causes 1,000 deaths a day?
Below find more facts about cardiac arrest and AEDs you may be unfamiliar with:

 

AED Management
  • Every year, cardiac arrest kills twice as many people as colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer combined.
  • Cardiac arrest is NOT the same as a heart attack and can be caused by a number of factors including arrhythmias, electrocution, choking, drowning, and trauma.
  • This means everyone, including children, can suffer cardiac arrest regardless of overall health. AEDs can be safely used on children with the help of pediatric pads.
  • Cardiac arrest causes the heart to abruptly stop. The shocks adminstered by an AED restart the heart on a normal rhythm.
  • AEDs are able to read the heart rhythm of the patient. They will NOT shock someone who is not in cardiac arrest.
