THE STANDARD OF CARE (How do I really save a life?)

SCA - Emergency Responders Network - AED ImplementationTHE STANDARD OF CARE HAS CHANGED...
CPR was once considered "The Standard of Care". However, with the advancement of technology, increased awareness and the availability of affordable adjuncts, AEDs have become the new standard in pre-hospital Chain of Survival response! Organizations once concerned about the liabilities of including an AED as part of their response plan have discovered they are now vulnerable if they don't have one!

THE POTENTIAL OF AEDS...
Because Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is most effectively treated within the first few seconds or minutes of a sudden collapse, AEDs have the potential to save thousands of lives that could be lost if treatment is delayed until paramedics arrive on the scene of a cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association's Early Defibrillation movement aims to put AEDs in the hands of all first responders in places where people live, work and play.

THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING ACTION...
Governing Authorities have gone to great lengths to encourage the placement of AEDs in and around those areas where people live, work and play. While the specific requirements vary from state to state, none have regulations that are burdensome in a way that would prevent anyone desiring to start an AED program from doing so. Federal and state Good Samaritan laws are now in place to protect all parties involved from the fear of civil liability (see Legal Issues). In fact, the trend now is for organizations who do NOT have an AED available to be sued. The standard of care has changed! For more information, see: OSHA now recommends the placement of AEDs in the work place.

THE PROBLEM
This year nearly 350,000 Americans will suffer from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and most of them (95%) will die before emergency care arrives. Studies show that a shock delivered with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) within a few minutes is the most effective way to increase the chance of survival for victims in ventricular fibrillation.

THE SOLUTION
Whether you suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in your place of work or in the Hospital Emergency Room, defibrillation is THE definitive treatment... An AED or Automated External Defibrillator is a small, portable device used on victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. It analyzes the heart's electrical activity and prompts the user to deliver a shock if it decides the heart needs it. By actuating a button, a shock is delivered to the heart by the AED through the pads placed on the chest. The goal is to convert the disabling rhythm to a normal rhythm and restore healthy heart function. The sooner the AED is used, the more likely the victim will survive. Click here to learn more...

LIVES SAVED!
"His heart had stopped and he was starting to turn blue,” explains Lombrano, who is a friendly, small-town Security Officer. “The bystanders were performing CPR so I activated the AED; it indicated that I should shock him. After the second shock, his heart started right up. Soon after, the paramedics arrived; I knew he was doing all right when he started regaining consciousness.” Click here to learn more...
