For The Peace Of Mind Of Your Loved Ones At Home
With approximately 450,000 victims per year, sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. During cardiac arrest, your brain and vital organs are starved of blood and oxygen, potentially causing permanent damage, if not death. Although CPR is a vital step in the life-saving process, only defibrillation from a portable AED can restore the heart’s normal rhythm and ultimately save a life.
In addition to being provided to medical personnel, emergency medical responders, and police, AEDs are now common in many public places such as restaurants, schools and universities, businesses, and churches.
By providing portable AEDs outside the hospital setting, many victims of sudden cardiac arrest can receive life-saving treatment before EMS professionals arrive on the scene. However, not all sudden cardiac emergencies happen in public places—many happen in the privacy of someone’s home. With a portable AED in your home, you wouldn’t waste precious time waiting for EMS responders to arrive with a defibrillator. If you or a family member or friend collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest in your home, having a portable AED already on the scene could potentially save the life of you or a loved one.
