Sudden Cardiac Arrest, which strikes 1,000 people every day, doesn’t have to be fatal.
Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
In 2012, AED.com will be giving away 100 AEDs to worthy causes and organizations. Why? To raise awareness of the need for AEDs (automated external defibrillators) anywhere and everywhere sudden cardiac arrest can potentially strike. Unfortunately, that indeed means EVERYWHERE: home, work, on the road, public events, etc. If you happen to find yourself in a hospital or fire house, you can rest assured that someone will be there with the appropriate equipment to help you. Anywhere else and it’s a roll of the dice. After five minutes without treatment from an AED, a victim's chances of survival and recovery are dramatically reduced. At the ten-minute mark, hope is lost.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest, which strikes 1,000 people every day, doesn’t have to be fatal. However, to have that death sentence lifted, an AED must be used to restore the natural rhythm of the heart. AED.com will be giving away AEDs from all six manufacturers: Zoll Medical, Philips Healthcare, Physio-Control, Cardiac Science, Heartsine and Defibtech. We will determine which donated AED makes the most sense based on the organization’s wants and needs.
Please tell us why you or your organization needs and deserves a FREE AED from AED.com by visiting our blog. We will be giving away several AEDs every month and letting everyone know who received the AED and which one it was. AED.com hopes that these devices will help communities begin the discussion regarding how to improve the safety of their homes and places of work.
