What is Cardiac Arrest?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States — accounting for an estimated 325,000 deaths each year. Without treatment, SCA will lead to death within minutes. To ensure the highest chance of survivability, one must immediately call the local emergency number, start CPR, and use an AED. Thankfully, the field of science has made the technology within automated external defibrillators easy to use, accurate, and highly effective. They were designed for those who do not have first responder training, but become that much more effective when coupled with a basic AED or CPR class.
The average ambulance takes 9 minutes to reach your home. We want you to be prepared, no matter what emergency situation you are in.
