Medical’s goal is to make early defibrillation more accessible. Every year more
than 950,000 adult Americans die from cardiovascular disease, making it the No.
1 cause of death in the United States. Sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of
at least 250,000 of those Americans before they reach a hospital.
Cardiac Arrest strikes people of all ages and fitness levels, usually without warning. Many of these lives could be saved if bystanders act promptly to phone 911 and begin CPR, and if trained responders provide defibrillation within minutes.
The AED Plus is more than a defibrillator. ZOLL has developed a full resuscitation device which not only delivers a shock to a patient when necessary but it also reinforces your CPR training by voice and visual prompts going through all of the steps to CPR.
Early defibrillation helps save lives
According to American Heart Association implementing a QUALITY AED program involves four key elements:

Notifying the Local EMS Agency
Protocol for reporting an emergency
a. Where AED’s are located
b. Process for sharing event data
c. Selecting, Placing and Maintaining AEDs
