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.
