Semi-Automatic Defibrillators

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen at any time without indication. Each minute someone suffering a cardiac arrest is left untreated the chances of the sufferer surviving decrease by 10 percent. Having an easy to access and easy to operate defibrillator (AED) available will save lives.

Semi-automatic AEDs measure the sufferer's heart rate once the paddles are attached and prompt the first-aider to deliver a life-saving shock if necessary. Simply pressing a button delivers the shock and the first-aider can then begin CPR. Fully automatic AEDs are also available, as well as accessories such as cabinets for storage and ease of access, AED Prep Kit to prepare patients for defibrillation and bundle packages that provide an AED along with informational signage, a cabinet and training materials.
