POLICE & LAW
As a police or law enforcement officer, you are often the first responder in a cardiac emergency arriving before emergency medical personnel. Unfortunately, this scenario is not rare: Approximately 365,000 people in North America fall victim to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) every year. The only effective treatment for SCA is shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED), administered as soon as possible. The life you save with an AED could be that of a fellow police officer; between the high-risk of the job and the levels of stress, police officers are among the highest-risk groups for SCA.
SCHOOL & ATHLETICS
Each year, we needlessly lose 7,000 young persons to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). However, most schools cannot afford to have an MD or EMT on school grounds during school hours and after-school activities, but they can afford to have easy-to-use automated external defibrillators (AEDs) with voice prompts to walk users through the simple steps necessary in life-saving defibrillation and CPR. Schools that have needed a portable AED now say they can’t imagine being without it. That’s why so many have carried out fundraising and sponsorship campaigns to help keep their children, staff, and visitors heart safe.
Whether you work in a private practice, hospital or dental office, your patients are susceptible to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Considering that even the best EMS departments can take, on average, nine minutes to respond having an automated external defibrillator (AED) easily accessible may mean the difference between life and death.
GOVERNMENT & MILITARY
Whether you are a government employee or a military member, you may be called on to respond to a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Unlike heart attacks, it can strike people of all ages and fitness levels. And the only effective treatment is a shock from a defibrillator, administered as soon as possible. Cardiac Solutions is a leader in establishing comprehensive programs to bring protection to an entire post or base. Public access defibrillation programs are ideal solutions for military bases with busy public areas such as hospitals, clinics, housing, barracks, and commissaries.
FIRE & EMS
First responders across the country deploy automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for the dependability and technology that performs when a life depends on it. Put simply, if you require a reliable AED that can deliver life-saving therapy quickly and dependably, an AED is for you. Our defibrillators feature a portable defibrillator and cardiac monitor in one, EMS and first responders have one less piece of equipment to handle — and more time to administer critical care.
Cardiac Solutions is a strong advocate for public access defibrillation (PAD) programs that place automatic external defibrillators throughout communities. Our goal is to have an AED next to every fire extinguisher. With more AEDs in the community, everyday citizens become part of the emergency response system, increasing the likelihood that first responders can save a life.
With more than one million sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) deaths in North America and Europe, the likelihood of a cardiac emergency occurring at your hotel is real. The only effective treatment for SCA is a shock from an automated external defibrillator (AED), administered as soon as possible. Providing a safe environment for hotel guests and employees is vital to your reputation. One of the best ways to provide hotel guests that essential protection is with an AED program.
Employees are your No. 1 assets. In fact, 13% percent of all workplace fatalities stem from SCA. And the only effective treatment is a shock from a defibrillator, administered as soon as possible. Sadly, few companies are prepared to deal with SCA despite the fact that death from SCA in the United States is 96 times more likely than death from fire. Yet companies that have plenty of fire extinguishers in place to protect employees, customers, and visitors may not have even one heart defibrillator on their premises.
