The Importance of an AED and Where to Place Them

The Importance of an AED and Where to Place Them
Data from the American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Statistics show there are more than 356,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests annually in the U.S. and nearly 90% are fatal. According to the research done by the National Safety Council, if there was an increase to the access of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), then it could potentially save as many as 40,000 lives each year. To aid in decreasing the fatality of cardiac arrest, many states in the U.S. that have mandated AEDs in public buildings but private companies have been slower to adapt this concept to their own facilities. Cardiac arrest can occur suddenly and without any warning which is why OSHA encourages employers to provide AEDs in the workplace and other public places. Having AEDs installed in the workplace can bring peace of mind to the employees and the employers by providing life saving abilities to people with no training.
