Free AED database - improve the chance of cardiac arrest survival
The CPR network and Priority Dispatch launched a new AED initiative to increase the chance of survival in case of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
Cardiac arrest is caused when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. In cardiac arrest death results when the heart suddenly stops working properly. This may be caused by abnormal, or irregular, heart rhythm. To have a chance to survive a cardiac arrest, the first six minutes are absolutely crucial.
Cardiac arrest is the number one cause of death among non-communicable diseases. Each year, more than 350,000 emergency medical services-assessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States, and on average about 8 percent of the victims survive. The American Heart Association estimates that effective bystander CPR and usage of an AED, provided immediately after SCA, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.
