WHY HAVE AN AED?
At least 250,000 people a year will die of a heart attack within one hour of the onset of symptoms before they reach a hospital. The chances of survival after SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) outside of a hospital are slim, less than 10%. If an AED is attached and used within 3-5 minutes of SCA the survival rate is over 85%.
WHAT IS DEFIBRILLATION?
When a person goes into cardiac arrest, the most common initial rhythm is called VF - Ventricular Fibrillation. The ventricles of the heart are in a crazy, erratic rhythm. They are moving very fast yet no blood is being pumped out of the heart. CPR cannot correct VF but a defibrillator can. A defibrillator is a device that sends an electrical shock through the heart and stops the ventricles from fibrillating. Most victims of cardiac arrest will require early defibrillation to be resuscitated.
The probability of successful defibrillation of v-fib diminishes rapidly over time. Most victims of cardiac arrest will require early defibrillation to be resuscitated.
