Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is characterized by the abrupt loss of heart function. More than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States each year. When laypeople know how to perform CPR and use an AED, it can make the difference between life and death for SCA victims.
CPR, when performed within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. It is also important that AEDs be readily available when SCA occurs. An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is a portable medical device that is used to automatically analyze and detect cardiac arrhythmias in SCA victims. An AED delivers a shock to the heart that allows it to return to a normal rhythm.
