What exactly is an AED?
AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator.
An AED is a medical equipment, about the size of a laptop computer, used to
restart or correct a person's heart that has suffered from SCA or sudden cardiac arrest.


         


Fact:  Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States and claims more than 300,000 Americans each year.
The only remedy for survival is an electric shock from an AED.  A sudden cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival decreases 10% with each passing minute after collapse.  Therefore, the chance of survival is 0% after 10 minutes.

Having an AED readily available is the only chance for survival.
Studies have shown that by the time the ambulance arrived on scene, it's always too late.
Fact:  The national EMS / ambulance response time 12 minutes.

When every second counts, having an AED is more than a good idea.

Many counties and city buildings are required to be equipped with an AED.
All commercial airline passengers flying in the US are required to have an AED onboard.

Fact:  Hundreds and thousands of schools, places of worships, gyms, museums, concert halls, etc ... have AEDs, mostly by choice.
