EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC has published a comprehensive infographic entitled “The Importance of Having an AED Program” to provide information on a basic understanding of AED programs.
With this infographic, EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC informs people on many aspects of AED programs. To accurately educate consumers on AED programs, the infographic covers what an AED is, when to use an AED, benefits of having an AED program, why an AED should always be present, and how-to train your employees to properly use an AED.
An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is responsible for evaluating the heart rhythm and providing electric shocks to the heart, and it should be used if a person is unresponsive and there is no normal breathing. Having an AED present is important because it is a valuable resource until trained professionals arrive. Using an AED increases the survival rate by 60% and can mean the difference between life and death.
Using an AED is straightforward because it has prompts and guidelines to follow. All AED machines follow the same basic steps, and it is vital to have people trained on proper procedures for CPR and AED. An important tip is to make sure nothing touches the patient because it could interfere with AED readings.
“Having a functional AED program is important because AEDs can help save lives,” said EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC Founder Stephanie Duehring. “Having employees properly trained in CPR and AED is just as important as having an AED present. To train employees on correct protocols, you should use a training company who specializes in CPR and AED techniques.”
