At AED.US, we’re committed to reducing the number of preventable Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) deaths by placing as many life-saving AEDs in our communities as possible via our free AED program. According to the American Heart Association, from 2013-2016, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rates have risen steadily alongside increased use (and knowledge of) CPR by bystanders. And with the recent complications caused by COVID-19, we are seeing out of the hospital SCA events on the rise. This means knowing CPR and having an AED accessible is truly lifesaving! That’s why we’re excited to partner with the American Heart Association and American Red Cross to teach CPR skills and donate AEDs from all our brands, including: Cardiac Science, ZOLL, Physio-Control, Heartsine, Defibtech, and Philips.
Our hope is that these free AEDs go to good homes and are placed in areas where they will stand ready to make a life-or-death difference, with fast-acting responders, should the need arise. Over the years, we have seen free defibrillators that were donated save children and parents, coaches and teachers, and other members of our communities.
