Preventing Sudden Cardiac Arrest Death with AED Defibrillators

We all know that cancer is a major killer in the U.S. but we often underestimate Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  It’s SCA that takes the lives without warning of people in their workplace, homes, public places, gyms, athletic events and yes even kids in school.  The American Heart Association claims there are a shocking 360,000 deaths each year, that’s 1,000 today and another 1,000 tomorrow, etc.  Cardiac Arrest is caused by an unexpected electrical misfire in the heart which causes the heart to quiver rapidly as part of a chaotic heart rhythm.  Following this the victim drops to the ground, loses consciousness, and is unable to breathe or show signs of life.  In short, the heart must be stopped by a defibrillation shock in hopes that it is restarted into a normal rhythm.  SCA happens to men and women, young and old, and even school aged schools and it is most unpredictable.

There’s a silver lining to these troubling statistics and that’s the technology has made possible public defibrillators which can be used by ordinary people to revive the victim and bring them back from sure death.  AEDs are Automated External Defibrillators and these surprisingly simple-to-use devices guide the responder through the rescue.  These are the general steps as to how to revive the victim:

1.    Direct someone to call 911 and direct some to retrieve the AED
2.    Begin CPR until the AED arrives
3.    The AED should be removed from the surface mount cabinet (unless already mobile)
4.    Open the carrying case but the AED sometimes does not need to be completely removed from the case
5.    Power on the AED which is done by pushing the power button or unlatching the AED lid
6.    Follow the AED’s voice prompts exactly as directed
7.    Look for visual prompts like a text screen, illuminating diagrams or a video screen (these are most helpful for noisy environments)
8.    Remove clothing from the victim’s chest
9.    Place the electrode pads as directed or diagrammed, one goes on the upper right of the bare chest and the other in the lower left
10.    Once the pads are placed properly the AED determines if a shock is required
11.    If a shockable rhythm is detected the AED will advise a shock
12.    If directed to deliver a shock push the shock button (some AEDs are fully-automatic which means it delivers a shock without having to push a shock button)
13.    How to use an AED When prompted to begin CPR place overlapping hands in the middle of the chest and push down approximately one third of the depth of the chest at the rate 100 compression per minute
14.    Subsequent shocks are sometimes required if the initial shock is not successful, the device will advise accordingly

Individuals handle pressure differently and thus training efforts should be maximized for the staff with CPR/AED training, instructional videos, and periodic refreshers. All these efforts improve the chance of a revival.

How People Can Save Lives with Home AEDs?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is one of the Nation’s biggest killers taking about 1,000 lives each day.  Unlike a heart attack which victims often survive, Cardiac Arrest is usually fatal because it’s an electrical misfire in the heart.  Victim’s lose consciousness, fall to the ground and death certainly follows unless CPR and defibrillation occur quickly.  Out of the hospital studies suggest that a casino is one of the best places to suffer an SCA because of the prominence of many AEDs, trained CPR responders and cameras to quickly identify an emergency situation.  One of the worst places to suffer SCA is in the home as public defibrillators are most often not available.  

When AEDs became available on the market they ranged upward of $2000 or $3000 each.  As adoption of AEDs has increased in workplaces, public settings, airports, schools and churches prices have come down quite dramatically.  

So what about the home?  Home defibrillators are becoming increasingly enticing as who do we love and care about more than our family and friends.  There are several AED types which are priced appropriately for the home setting that also have ease-of-use features that make it ideal for this type of use.  Might we recommend the HeartSine Samaritan PAD 350P for just $1225.00 which is not just affordable to buy but also economical to maintain, it uses a combined batter and pad called a PAD-PAK which is replaced just every 4-years.  HeartSine AEDs are remarkably easy to operate as they have both voice prompts and illuminating diagrams to help guide the responder through the rescue and through CPR.  We also recommend the Philips HeartStart OnSite AED for just $1199.00 from the same Philips who make trusted consumer electronic products.  The HeartStart AEDs are distinguished by their red carrying cases and product simplicity.  Responders appreciate that the AED will repeat and change prompting based on the pace of the rescuer.

When one considers what they spend on TVs, audio/video equipment, major appliances which might contribute to a nice lifestyle, making this approximately $1200 investment could help save a life and bring back a loved one from death.  We have helped many families with home defibrillators and many of whom have placed one in the home and one in their personal vehicles.  We applaud all who are thinking proactively and invest in this life-saving technology.  Visit for more or email us at or call 855-677-2337 for any questions or needs.
