Restaurants & Supermarkets
Your customers and employees
are the heartbeat of your business
Restaurants & Supermarkets are very common public spaces where a good number of people are enjoying a meal or shopping for provisions. Even though these areas are smaller than large venues such as educational institutions or airports, it should not discourage decision-makers from making these important emergency response devices available to the public they serve.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by chaotic electrical activity in the heart and can only be treated with an electric shock called defibrillation. Recent advances in modern technology, along with legislative support from federal and state governments, have made a solution available to the public. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are this life-saving solution.
It is just as likely for diners and grocery shoppers, many who may be alone, to suffer sudden cardiac arrest in these types of public spaces. For these smaller spaces, it may be that a single AED located for easy access will provide the immediate response time that could help save a life. Many chains have mandated AED programs at each of their locations. It is a simple and inexpensive way to ensure the safety of both patrons and employees.
New Haven, CT
At a Chili’s Restaurant Bar & Grill two medical students worked to help a choking female customer until the arrival of paramedics. Paramedics utilized the Lifeline ARM Automated Chest Compression device to administer life-saving compressions before later taking the patient to Yale New Haven Hospital.
