Your customers and employees
are the heartbeat of your business
It is well established that physical fitness is one way to lower your overall risk of heart disease, however sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone. Oftentimes, sudden cardiac death is the first sign that there was an underlying problem concerning the heart.1
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.
Many States have made AEDs a requirement in fitness centers, health clubs, and gyms. And sports venues with AEDs on site are more prepared to respond to cases of sudden cardiac arrest for athletes, employees, and patrons. Highly visible and simple enough for anyone to use, Defibtech’s AEDs are an ideal solution for the diverse traffic of these types of facilities.
The first reported save with a Defibtech AED occurred at the Hartsville YMCA in South Carolina, where a member collapsed during a workout. Another YMCA member was able to successfully rescue the victim despite never having been trained on the Lifeline AED. This YMCA location had purchased the AED only weeks prior to the rescue. They had previously not owned an AED because they could not afford one.
Defibtech has developed an Advocate Support Program to help everyday people champion for an AED device that can save lives in the event of sudden cardiac arrest. Need help with selecting an AED or not sure which AEDs are right for your facility or public space? Simply contact our Advocacy Support Representative and they will be happy to help.
