Every year in the US over 320,000 people (of all ages) die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) outside of hospitals. While Fire and EMS departments do a great job trying to save these people time is not on their side. Severe brain damage occurs withing 4-6 minutes and brain death by 10 minutes.
On scene bystanders are the best chance for these victims. Prompt CPR and early use of an AED will dramatically increase the victims chance of survival. This presentation is a brief overview on how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This presentation should not take away from that fact that all people need to attend a formal CPR and AED course.
