Automated External Defibrillators, also known as AEDs, are portable electronic devices used to help revive someone experiencing a sudden cardiac arrest. These AEDs can be found in physiotherapy clinics, dental offices, and many other public offices all over the world. These devices deliver an electronic shock, or defibrillation, to help restore the heart’s normal rhythm. Up to 45,000 people die of sudden cardiac arrests yearly in Canada alone. This number can drastically decrease if people had better access to these AEDs. Studies have shown that AEDs can increase survival rates by up to 70%. Sales of AEDs have recently spiked after well-known soccer player Christian Eriksen, collapsed and suffered a cardiac arrest during a match at Euro 2020. The AED was used, and it helped save Eriksen’s life. This was just an example of how important having access to these devices is.
Even though these devices are relatively expensive, the cost is a small price to pay considering how many lives these AEDs can save.
How do you use AEDs?
AEDs require minimal training to use. Once the unit is powered on, voice prompts are initiated to guide the user through the subsequent steps. The electrode pads are then attached to the victim; the device automatically diagnoses the heart rhythm and determines if an electric shock is required.
TRH Services Annual Preventive Maintenance
During our annual preventive maintenance, TRH Services will thoroughly test your AEDs. The AEDs are worthless if not properly maintained, so here at TRH services, we strongly recommend performing maintenance at least once a year. Our technologists inspect the device for wear, cracks, and any signs of damage. Furthermore, the batteries and the electrode pads are inspected to ensure that they are not expired. A self-test is also completed to make sure the AED is ready to use.
