AED.com is dedicated to helping healthcare professionals improve their readiness to treat cardiac arrest. Help your medical facility achieve a new standard of care for your patients, visitors and staff from the unpredictable and potentially devastating effects of sudden cardiac arrest. There is a very good chance the Code Team in the hospital cannot respond fast enough to save someone in cardiac arrest, particularly large facilities or remote areas of the hospital.
Consider the time needed to make it through building security, to a remote outpatient building or clinic, or down an elevator for example. Without early defibrillation, only 5 out of 100 SCA victims will survive. AEDs offer a practical way to save more lives because they are designed for use by nearly anyone. Widespread deployment of AEDs in public places gives SCA victims the best chance of survival.
