How does it work? These devices use an electrocardiogram ECG analysis algorithm to determine whether a victim has a shockable or non-shockable rhythm and advises a shock when appropriate. The devices incorporate an audible metronome to guide the user as to the correct rate at which chest compressions should be administered. If a defibrillation shock is required, the device will deliver an escalating, impedance-compensating, rectilinear biphasic shock waveform through the multifunction defibrillator electrodes. When is it used? The devices are intended for use by trained medical personnel, unlike public access defibrillators, which are intended for use by minimally trained lay users.

Automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, are a medical product that many people have heard of, but might not know much about. If the SCA is not treated within minutes, the person can die. Having an AED defibrillator close at hand can make it possible for anyone trained in their use, including non-medical personnel, to treat a heart attack victim and increase their chances of survival.

How to Use an AED AEDs have been designed to make resuscitation easier for lay people, even those with no medical training, to perform. Shocking the heart causes it to stop beating momentarily which gives the heart the opportunity to reset itself and start beating normally.

AEDs come with complete instructions on their use and guide the user step by step through the defibrillation process. Only in cases of ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia will an external defibrillator recommend shocking the heart.

AEDs should be used by people who are trained in their operation. What is Cardiac Arrest? Heart attack symptoms and cardiac arrest can strike suddenly and without warning. Two major signs of SCA are sudden loss of responsiveness and non-normal breathing. If the victim does not respond to tapping on the shoulders, or if they do not take a normal breath when you tilt their head up and check for a breath for at least five seconds, they may be experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.

If these signs are present, the first step is to call , then determine if an AED defibrillator is available. If one is, begin using it as soon as possible. Sudden cardiac arrest is different from heart attack because it can occur in anyone of any age and no matter what their level of fitness. Cardiac Arrest Treatment Cardiac arrest can be reversible if the victim is treated within the first few minutes of the SCA.

Ensuring that emergency medical services are administered to the victim within minutes of a heart attack can be the difference between life and death.

Using CPR with an external defibrillator can help prevent brain damage by maintaining blood flow through the heart while returning it to its normal rhythm. Placing AEDs in health clubs, gyms, and fitness centers, athletic clubs, and all first response vehicles, such as ambulances, police cars, and fire engines is recommended.

Crisis Management By purchasing an AED Brands automated external defibrillator, you are taking a simple step towards fulfilling an essential medical resuscitation need. Sudden cardiac arrest does not show warning signs.

It strikes suddenly, and the results can be devastating. By having AEDs close by, you have the ability to save a life that may be placed in your hands.
