Anyone Can Use An AED To Save A Life
AEDs Were Made for the General Public to Use
Studies have shown that the majority of people report a lack of confidence in using an AED. And many think they’re not even allowed to use one.
But public access defibrillators are onsite because when Sudden Cardiac Arrest stops a victim’s heart, the only way to restart it is with an AED. And every minute’s delay decreases the chance of survival by 10%. Improving survival depends on shocking a victim within 3 – 5 minutes of collapse. Research has shown that 9 in 10 victims who receive a shock within the first minutes survive.
