AEDs

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the #1 cause of death in the U.S., taking more than 400,000 lives each year. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends a specific four-step "Chain-of-Survival" for SCA. The hallmarks of this sequence, which are well documented as dramatically increasing survival rates, are:

1) Early 911 Access

2) Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

3) Early Defibrillation with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and

4) Early Advanced Life Support (ALS).
