When someone suffers from a cardiac arrest, an Automated External Defibrillator, or AED, can be used to analyze a victim’s heartbeat and provide a shock to try and restore the heart’s normal rhythm. Old-school defibrillators could only be used by trained professionals, but AEDs are much more user-friendly today, and provide voice prompts that effectively guide the rescuer towards saving someone’s life. Old-school defibrillators allowed paramedics and other trained professionals to be life-savers, but AEDs allow both trained and even untrained individuals to be lifesavers. Having one in your home, cottage or business allows everyone to have the tools needed to save a life in the worst case scenario.
Sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating properly. It is actually considered an electrical malfunction in the heart’s electrical system. This malfunction causes the heart to be incapable of pumping blood to the brain and other organs around the body. This ultimately causes the victim to collapse, stop breathing, and can eventually lead to death.
There is a stigma out there that if you are fit, young and healthy you are not at risk of SCA, yet this stigma is completely untrue. Although SCA is more commonly seen in people who have heart or artery disease, it can actually happen to anyone of any age at any time. This can be due to drug use, electrocution, sudden blows to the chest or random electrical malfunctions such as ventricular fibrillation. That last one is the scariest, because it can truly happen to anyone, anywhere at any time. It’s when the heart quivers and its normal rhythm is impaired. It can no longer pump blood throughout the body, and causes the victim to collapse.
When it comes to defibrillators, there are many devices out there and we truly believe that Zoll is the leader. The Zoll AED 3 with its interactive display provides voice, picture and text prompts that guide the rescuer step-by-step to saving a life. Even untrained individuals can save a life with this device. Its Real CPR Help analyzes the depth and rate of compressions that the rescuer is performing to give real-time feedback to the rescuer. In terms of ownership costs and responsibilities, Zoll’s uni-padz are the only ones on the market that are capable of being used on both adult and children, so only one set of pads is needed. The uni-padz also have the longest shelf-life of any other defibrillator padz: 5 years. Conveniently the defibrillator’s battery has the same shelf-life and is the only other component that requires regular replacement, making ownership very cost efficient and stress-free.
