Bloomfield, CT (PRWEB) February 10, 2012
Sudden Cardiac Arrest, when the heart suddenly and abruptly stops beating, is usually caused by ventricular fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythm) and is treated by defibrillation, an electrical current applied to the chest (Zoll Medical). Having an AED in close proximity can help save lives. According to The Center for Early Defibrillation, SCA claims between 250,000 and 400,00 lives each year. Time is critical during a cardiac emergency, as survival rates decrease by 10% with each passing minute (http://www.chainofsurvival.com). Given that the average response time for emergency medical attention is nine minutes, having an AED on site will help keep victims alive. Every school, business, and planned living community should have an AED.
The Zoll AED Plus is the same unit used by firefighters, EMTs, and police departments nationwide. For the general public, this device features Real CPR Help®, a CPR feedback tool that monitors what is happening during CPR with audio and visual prompts in order arrive at the best possible outcome. For example, if compressions are not hard enough, it will prompt to apply more pressure. When the right amount of pressure is applied, it will say, “Good compressions.” Even when electrical shock is not needed, the Zoll AED Plus is an amazing life-saving device during Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
