How important is having an AED device readily available for someone that suffers from a cardiac arrest?
It is widely accepted that reducing delays to defibrillation leads to better outcomes for patients in a shockable rhythm.
Time is Critical
Victoria Ambulance attended 6,024 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in 2016/17. The proportion of casualties that survived to hospital when first defibrillated by Paramedics was 54%, compared with a higher 65% of patients for those that were first shocked with a Public operated AED. A Reduced time to defibrillation made the critical difference.
These figures prove just how vital it is to co-workers and family to have an operational AED readily available if a cardiac arrest incident was ever to occur. When someone experiences a sudden cardiac arrest “SCA”, the longer they have to wait until the first shock, the less chance they have of survival.
