An emergency such as a heart attack can happen at any time and in any location, including at a school, office, store, or other place of business. In that situation, it is important to begin providing treatment as soon as possible to save the patient’s life.
An automatic external defibrillator (AED) is a device that sends an electric shock to the victim of a cardiac arrest to restart the heart. This device can save a patient’s life in the critical moments before an ambulance arrives.
Having an AED in your school or workplace can mean the difference between life and death for someone who goes into cardiac arrest. An AED can be stored in a cabinet in a readily accessible location so that it is available at a moment’s notice.
Survival Supply carries AEDs from many top manufacturers, including Heartsine, Defibtech, Philips, ZOLL, Cardiac Science, and Physio-Control. An AED is easy to use and comes with clear written or spoken instructions that are simple to follow so that even a person with little or no training can operate it in an emergency.
We also offer AED training kits so that employees can be instructed on how to operate the device. That way they will be prepared to act immediately if someone has a heart attack, without the need to take the time to read or listen to instructions. When a person is experiencing heart failure, every second counts.
A heart attack can happen to a person of any age at any time. Be prepared by making sure that your school or business has an AED available. This device can save someone’s life in the critical time before paramedics arrive and is an essential piece of equipment for any school or workplace.
