AED

 Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) affects over 325,000 people a year, and can occur anywhere, anytime, to anyone. One of the ways to increase the odds of survival is for companies to purchase automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and implement an AED Program in their organization. 


OSHA encourages employers to provide AEDs in the workplace 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration advises that AEDs be considered for inclusion in workplace first-aid programs: 
 
"An automated external defibrillator (AED) should be considered when selecting first-aid supplies and equipment…With recent advances in technology, automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are now widely available, safe, effective, portable, and easy to use. They provide the critical and necessary treatment for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)… All worksites are potential candidates for AED programs because of the possibility of SCA and the need for timely defibrillation." 

OSHA's Best Practices Guide: Fundamentals of a Workplace First-Aid Program 

The ZOLL AED Plus is the first and only automated external defibrillator (AED) that provides Real CPR Help® for depth and rate of chest compressions during CPR, supporting the entire Chain of Survival, with easy to-understand audio prompts and illustrations. 

What is Real CPR Help®: AED contents

  • Not pushing hard enough? The AED Plus®will tell you when to push harder. 
  • Pushing hard enough? It will say, "Good compressions." 
  • Not pushing fast enough? A metronome will lead you to the right rate. 
  • It will even show you the depth of each compression—in real time. 
  • Not yet started? The AED Plus will tell you to get started.

The AED Plus also has lowest total cost of ownership, once installed, because CPR-D-padz and batteries last five years, if not used. Replacing the batteries is convenient since the AED Plus is powered by 10 lithium batteries available from retail stores everywhere.
