  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Month

    Did you know that October is Sudden Cardiac Arrest Month?

    Learn CPR! Learn CPR!

    Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the number one killer in America - Learning CPR can help save those around you. Recent Statistics show that 66 percent of the people who collapse after the electrical activity is disrupted in their heart survive. That's true if someone else sees it happen and calls 911, and if the person receives CPR from emergency response crews or bystanders.

    There is a critical 3- to 5-minute window to save a victim of SCA.

    Know the cardiac chain of survival:

    ? Early recognition of SCA, which may include any of the following: collapsed and unresponsive, gasping, gurgling, seizure-like activity.

    ? Early access to 9-1-1.

    ? Begin CPR immediately.

    ? Retrieve and begin use of an AED immediately.

    ? Early advanced care from first responders.

    Recently, the focus has been on deeper, harder CPR for a longer duration — more than an hour in some cases — with fewer, shorter interruptions. EMS Teams that have been employing this strategy started seeing better survival numbers right away.

    Our recommendations: Learn CPR at Home, or Schedule a Group CPR & AED Training at your location. Get and AED... Need help? Try the AED Grant Program!

  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Market to grow 50% in 5 years...

    The automated external defibrillator (AED) market is divided into two segments, namely semi-automated and fully automated. Both types are available at nearly same cost and are equally efficient in saving lives, although they function differently.

    AEDThe global automated external defibrillator market was worth $616 million in the year 2012. The market will grow at a healthy pace in the next five years due to the increasing incidence of cardiovascular disease, growing awareness about the lifesaving potential of AED, increasing installation of public access AEDs and technological advancements.

    Strategic collaborations, untapped emerging markets and home defibrillators represent vast opportunities for major shareholders of this market. However, frequent product recalls from various manufacturers and intense competition in mature markets will restrict the growth of the market, to some extent.

    North America is the largest market for AED, followed by Japan and Europe. Public access defibrillation programs have stimulated the growth of AED market in these regions. The European and Asian markets are expected to witness double-digit growth over the next five years, owing to the increasing installation of public access AEDs.

    Key players in the AED market are Philips Healthcare (The Netherlands), Cardiac Science (U.S.), ZOLL Medical Corporation (U.S.), Nihon Kohden (Japan), Physio-Control (U.S.), Defibtech (U.S.), HeartSine Technologies (U.S.), and Schiller (Switzerland).

  • CPR may not raise the Dead, but AEDs do - Here is living proof

    OK... So yesterday we told you CPR does not Resuscitate: But AEDs do.

    On July 31, the Fuquay family and St. John’s Firefighters came together to celebrate life and a second chance. This reunion was the result of an incident that happened nearly six months ago.

    On February 7, 2013 the Fuquay family went through the unimaginable. While preparing for a normal day, Mrs. Judy Fuquay heard a loud noise coming from the living room of her home. When she checked on the cause of the noise she found her husband Wayne lying face down on the floor. As she rolled him over “he looked like he was trying to say something to me then I saw him take his last breath” she stated during the reunion. “I

    called 911 then started chest compressions.” Initially, St. John’s Fire District Engine 705 and Charleston County EMS were dispatched to the home on Johns Island for a fall. While units responded to the incident, information was updated by Charleston County Dispatch that the person was unconscious and possibly not breathing. Engine 705 arrived on the scene finding a male lying on the floor of the home. They quickly assessed the patient, determining the patient did not have a pulse and was not breathing. While two Engine 705 crew members continued the CPR that Mrs. Fuquay initiated, a third crew member set up the Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). The AED pads were placed on the patient, the AED advised to administer a “shock”. The crew administered the shock then continued CPR. After one minute of CPR the AED advised a second shock, this shock converted the patient’s heart to a survivable rhythm and the patient regained a pulse. Charleston County EMS arrived and took over patient care. Engine 705’s crew then assisted EMS and supplied a driver for the ambulance. The patient was transported to a local hospital.
    Today Mr. Fuquay shows no signs of the event that took place this past February.

    Speaking with him at the reunion, he stated that he did not remember the incident and he has no recollection of the first two days he was in the hospital. This week he is heading to Florida for a fishing trip with family members. Although he is looking forward to the fishing trip, Mr. Fuquay can’t wait to start driving again. The American Heart Association recommends cardiac arrest survivors wait at least six months before driving, according to my conversation with Mrs. Fuquay.

    An AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) is a medical device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm. If necessary the AED provides an electrical shock, called defibrillation, which helps the re-establish an effective heart rhythm. For every minute that defibrillation is delayed the chance of survival decreases 10 percent. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest.

    AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) should be in every school, every business, and every public place - but people haven't clued in to the fact that they aren't enormous, scary expensive hospital devices. These are simple-to-use, efficient lifesaving devices that instruct the user. While CPR & AED training certainly makes their use more efficacious, it is not necessarily required as the devices walk the rescuer through the process with audio and visual instructions.

    More than ever, too, AEDs are easy to obtain, and funding is available even to private businesses and individuals (not just organizations) to obtain them.

    Consider the National AED Grant program at www.AedGrant.com - they provide funding assistance for getting AEDS. Their program is described as -

    An AED in every Home…
    An AED in every Business…
    An AED in every Public Place…

    Our Goal: An AED wherever tragedy may strike.

    They aren't required to use them, but one local health club did and ended up saving a man's life.

    Midtown Athletic Club used an automatic external defibrillator, also known as an AED. State law requires New York health clubs to have them, but a new ruling says employees aren't required to use them. But one man is glad they did. He almost died after going into cardiac arrest on a treadmill Tuesday. That AED was used to jump start his heart.
