CPR And How an AED Can Assist in A Heart Attack

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, commonly referred to as CPR, is an emergency life-saving procedure administered, often times by first-responders or a bystander, to a person experiencing loss of consciousness and heart failure. It is also used when a casualty has choked on food, been electrocuted, drowned or a number of other circumstances.

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation Improves the Chance to Survive A Heart Attack
Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation is performed by thrusting down on the chest in a prescribed manner while periodically breathing into the lungs in an attempt to revive the casualty. Medical statistics show persons receiving prompt cardiopulmonary resuscitation have a 70% greater survivability than those that don’t receive immediate assistance. By keeping the blood and oxygen flowing throughout the body; air to the lungs and blood to the brain, to preserve brain cell function, cardiopulmonary resuscitation saves lives.

Following the administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, when the emergency medical help arrives, if an assessment shows the casualty has suffered sudden cardiac arrest or a heart attack, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used in an attempt to re-establish a normal heartbeat and rhythm.

Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation Followed by AED Provides Better Health Outcomes
The Automated External Defibrillator is a small, portable device used to send an electric shock through the chest wall to the heart. The shock has the ability to stop an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and allow the resumption of normal heart rhythm following Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Casualties who receive early cardiopulmonary resuscitation, are better primed to and respond better to a defibrillator.

However, time is of the essence in saving a life. Medical statistics have shown, casualties that had early, fast access to a defibrillator device in conjunction with the administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation had far better health outcomes following a heart attack.

In recent years, new government workplace safety regulations have prompted companies and organizations across the country to include defibrillator devices in their first responder, first aid kits so they are available in the moment of need.

Be sure your organization is prepared and in compliance with your local regulations. Head over to AEDLeader.com for help evaluating the best Automated External Defibrillators from the leading brand name manufacturers. They can be reached by phone at 855-888-2771.
