Automated External Defibrillator (AED):

  • Waiting for the arrival of emergency first responders results only in 5-7% survival
  • The likelihood of successful resuscitation decreases by about 10% with every minute that passes.
  • Studies with immediate defibrillation have shown up to 60% survival one year after sudden cardiac arrest
  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a medical device designed to analyze the heart rhythm
  • An AED will deliver a shock to victims of ventricular fibrillation to restore the heart rhythm to normal
  • Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are an important lifesaving technology

 

Why have an AED in the workplace:

  • Workers may suffer sudden cardiac arrest while on the job
  • Onsite AED’s save treatment time, and can improve odds of survival
  • A heart rhythm in ventricular fibrillation may only be restored to normal by an electric shock
  • The AED is compact, lightweight, portable, battery operated, safe, and easy to use.
