Implementing an Automated External Defibrillation (AED) Program
Each year, at least250,000Americans die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) before they reach the hospital.
SCA strikes people of all ages and all degrees of fitness. It usually strikes without warning. Many of these lives can be saved if bystanders quickly phone 911, begin CPR, and perform defibrillation within minutes.
Most often SCA is caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation (VF) that prevents the heart from pumping blood. The treatment for VF is defibrillation. Defibrillation is the delivery of an electric shock to the heart that stops VF and allows a normal heart rhythm to resume.
Providing defibrillation on-site with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) increases survival rates for VF cardiac Arrest. In places where AED programs provide immediate CPR and deliver the first shock within minutes after the collapse, there has been a reported survival rate as high as 74%. Currently only about 5% of all sudden cardiac arrest victims survive where no AED programs have been established. Let Safety Operations Services train your employees in this life-saving skill.
The cost of an AED varies depending on the model that is to be purchased. Contact for more information and prices on the differing models and the equipment needed for each. AED training will be provided with any AED purchase.
