Make Sure Your AED Defibrillator Is Ready When You Need It
It’s the holiday season. There is an undeniable buzz everywhere you go and the holiday spirit is contagious. The malls are crowded, the local businesses are busy and the grocery stores have a constant flow of customers.
Something that most people aren’t thinking about is a heart attack. A heart attack is a serious event no matter what time of year it is, but with so many people congregating in one location, the likelihood of a mall or business needing an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) around the holiday season is much higher than any other time of year. Many grocery stores and malls are already equipped with AEDs in case there is a cardiac emergency, but store and shop owners might want to think about having their AEDs serviced to be sure they’re in excellent working condition.
Defibrillators and AEDs are life-saving devices that provide electrical stimulation to the heart to treat cardiac arrest victims. These devices are a lifeline when and where you need it most. A defibrillator can be used virtually anywhere when a patient loses a pulse and an AED is helpful to people who aren’t medical professionals to save a cardiac arrest victim in a matter of precious seconds.
Both devices have the potential to save lives, but they need to be in excellent working condition to do so. Having a properly working defibrillator or AED is like having insurance – because you never know when you might use it – which is why having your defibrillator of AED serviced regularly is so important.
