Automated External Defibrillators Save Lives!

DID YOU KNOW?

Every minute of every day, sudden cardiac arrest (which often leads to heart attack) claims another victim.  A heart attack occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart become blocked, the flow of blood which carries oxygen to the heart is slowed or stopped, and the muscle fibers contract chaotically rather than in sync with each other as they normally do.

How defibrillators work-

Manual defibrillators work by giving the heart a controlled electric shock,  forcing all the heart muscles to contract at once, and , hopefully jolting it back into a regular rhythm.

Historically, only trained medical professionals were able to interpret the heart rhythms on manual defibrillator devices.  However, today's new Automated External Defibrillator (AEDs) use embedded computer chips to analyze the rhythms instantly and accurately, making it possible for non-medical professionals to administer the same vital service without risking an accidental shock.

First Care Emergency offers this training to you, your friends, family, coworkers; you can be trained to use an AED at your site or ours at a date and time that is convenient for you.  You may schedule the training with CPR.

What is the training include?   thorough, interactive training on the proper use of AEDs; Interactive training and certification in Adult CPR; Intensive practice scenarios;  detailed, OSHA-compliant first aid instruction if requested. 

Call today!   You will be so glad you did!
