AED.US AED Buyer's Guide
AEDs (automated external defibrillators) have been utilized to save nearly a half-million lives since first being introduced to the American public in the mid-1990s. A defibrillator introduces a shock to a heart that is in cardiac arrest, enabling it to reset to a life-sustaining heartbeat. Most often it is the non-medical layperson who witnesses someone collapse, has the compassion to want to help, and jumps into action. AND, fortunately for the sudden cardiac arrest victim, there is an AED close by.
In the time it took to click on this link and read the introduction, another victim in the United States has collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association reports that SCA occurs nearly 1,000 times each day - roughly every 90 seconds. Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer in the American workplace, with more workplace deaths caused by SCA than all other causes combined!
In the AED.us Buyer’s Guide, we will present all current AED models from Cardiac Science, Defibtech, HeartSine, Physio-Control, Philips and ZOLL.
