(PRWEB) April 03, 2013
According to a recent release by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), there are 300,000-to-400,000 deaths per year in the U.S. from cardiac arrest. Most cardiac arrest deaths occur outside the hospital, such as in the workplace. Current out-of-hospital survival rates are only 1 to 5 percent - yet treatment with immediate electronic defibrillation can increase survival to more than 90 percent.
As more companies are searching for professional providers of cardiac care workplace safety initiatives, LifeGuard Medical Solutions now offers Total Solutions for those clients in need of onsite CPR Training and AED Program Management. Formed in response to the death of the founder's father by sudden cardiac arrest in 1999, LifeGuard focuses its efforts on providing the very best in customer service and support - while completing its corporate mission, "To Help Save Lives".
The American Heart Association (AHA) supports placing AEDs in targeted public areas such as sports arenas, gated communities, school systems, office complexes, doctor's offices, shopping malls, etc. When AEDs are placed in the community or a business or facility, the AHA strongly encourages that they be part of a defibrillation program.
