About 40,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in Canada, a majority of which occur at work or in public places. Every minute of delay in receiving CPR or defibrillator assistance reduces the chance of survival by 7%-10%In Ontario alone, 7,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occur each year. Defibrillation, when used in conjunction with CPR in the first few minutes can drastically improve cardiac survival rates by more than 70%.
External Defibrillators (AEDs) must be simple, clear and straight forward. AEDs are built to the exacting standards needed for emergency personnel, yet are designed for the speed and simplicity required for use by non-medical and often untrained individuals. Unlike other serious health issues sudden cardiac arrest is treatable. The only cure for most cases of sudden cardiac arrest is immediate shock therapy from an AED, a device that shocks a lifeless heart back to a normal rhythm.
AED’s are simple to use that even non medical personnel can effectively save lives. AED’s are being found in many schools, offices, stores, malls, airports, hotels,factories and many other public places.
