What Is an AED?
AED stands for automated external defibrillator. An AED is a portable device used to check a person’s heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to restore a normal rhythm to the heart. The rescuer follows the voice prompts, lights, and messages on the device to know what to do next. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), which occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.
SCA is a leading cause of death in the United States. About 10,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur when victims are at work. By placing AEDs in the workplace and providing proper training and AED management, organizations can prepare employees to respond to emergencies and help save lives.
The Importance of AEDs in Treating Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Concerns about costs, liability, and device malfunctions have prevented some organizations from getting AEDs. However, early AED use is proven to dramatically improve survival rates for sudden cardiac arrest. According to OSHA, using an AED on a cardiac arrest victim can improve the chances of survival by 60 percent. For each minute that an SCA victim goes without CPR or defibrillation, the chance of survival decreases by up to 10 percent.
In order to operate an AED, people must be able to recognize the signs of SCA and perform CPR. They should also receive training to become familiar with the device and feel comfortable enough to use it during an emergency.
An AED should be placed in a highly visible and accessible location. Once implemented, AEDs need to be visually inspected on a regular basis and maintained to ensure that they are working correctly. This is why investing in an AED management program is beneficial. AED management programs reduce risk and ensure that your organization is rescue ready at all times.
