What is an Automated External Defibrillators (AED)?

Automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, are a medical product that many people have heard of, but might not know much about. An AED defibrillator can be used during sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA generally occurs when a person’s heart stops beating due to ventricular fibrillation. When this happens the victim’s ventricles (the lower pumping chambers in the heart) begin beating erratically and out of rhythm. If a person’s heart beat is not returned to normal quickly by being “defibrillated” their chances of survival can drop 7 to 10 percent for every minute during the time their heart is not beating normally. If the SCA is not treated within minutes, the person can die. Having an AED defibrillator close at hand can make it possible for anyone trained in their use, including non-medical personnel, to treat a heart attack victim and increase their chances of survival.

How to Use an AED

AEDs have been designed to make resuscitation easier for lay people, even those with no medical training, to perform. Adhesive electrodes that are connected to a computer within the automated defibrillator are placed on the victim’s chest. Once they are attached to the SCA victim the computer checks the heart’s rhythm and calculates whether or not defibrillation is needed. If it is, a recorded voice will instruct the person administering treatment to press the AED’s shock button. Shocking the heart causes it to stop beating momentarily which gives the heart the opportunity to reset itself and start beating normally. AEDs come with complete instructions on their use and guide the user step by step through the defibrillation process. Only in cases of ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia will an external defibrillator recommend shocking the heart.

AEDs should be used by people who are trained in their operation. They are safe to use and are 100% accurate in evaluating the heart rhythm and determining whether a shock should be applied.

What is Cardiac Arrest?

Heart attack symptoms and cardiac arrest can strike suddenly and without warning. Two major signs of SCA are sudden loss of responsiveness and non-normal breathing. If the victim does not respond to tapping on the shoulders, or if they do not take a normal breath when you tilt their head up and check for a breath for at least five seconds, they may be experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. If these signs are present, the first step is to call 9-1-1, then determine if an AED defibrillator is available. If one is, begin using it as soon as possible. Sudden cardiac arrest is different from heart attack because it can occur in anyone of any age and no matter what their level of fitness. 

Cardiac Arrest Treatment

Cardiac arrest can be reversible if the victim is treated within the first few minutes of the SCA. Using an automated external defibrillator along with CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) can increase the victim’s chances of survival by a margin of more than 50%. Ensuring that emergency medical services are administered to the victim within minutes of a heart attack can be the difference between life and death. Using CPR with an external defibrillator can help prevent brain damage by maintaining blood flow through the heart while returning it to its normal rhythm.

Where Should an AED Device be Located?

Placing AEDs in health clubs, gyms, and fitness centers, athletic clubs, and all first response vehicles, such as ambulances, police cars, and fire engines is recommended.

Other places include areas where people at risk for heart attacks live and work, including public areas such as churches, sports arenas, doctors’ offices, airports, gated communities, office complexes or any other area where large numbers of people congregate. Children even experience SCA therefore placing AEDs in schools is important as well.

Crisis Management

By purchasing an AED Brands automated external defibrillator, you are taking a simple step towards fulfilling an essential medical resuscitation need. Sudden cardiac arrest does not show warning signs. It strikes suddenly, and the results can be devastating. By having AEDs close by, you have the ability to save a life that may be placed in your hands.
