Medical practices are finding that maintaining an AED in their facility where hundreds of people visit each week is now becoming the standard of care.
Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
Apryl Roulette is devastated after her four-year-old daughter, Jarilyn Roulette, went into sudden cardiac arrest after being administered general anesthetic. The young girl was rushed to the hospital after the doctors realized she was unresponsive. Apryl said she will never walk or eat again on her own and has brain damage. Jarilyn was in perfect health prior to the procedure and had no underlying heart conditions.

To date, nineteen U.S. states have mandated that dental practices have an automated external defibrillator (AED) in their office. These include: Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest strikes approximately 350,000 Americans each year, or close to 1,000 victims per day and the vast majority of these happen outside of the hospital. With dentists administering deep sedation, general anesthesia, and seeing an increasing number of elderly patients, the chances of cardiac arrest are more likely in these settings.
