Access Defibrillation Programs

of the most traumatic events any organization can experience is
the on-site death of a coworker, customer, or visitor. While these
events are fortunately rare, adequate preparedness is vital to
giving the victim the best chance for survival.
a person experiences Sudden Cardiac Arrest, timely application
of an electrical shock to heart from a special piece of medical
equipment called a defibrillator is essential to have any hope
of successful resuscitation. For each minute that goes by while
the victim is in cardiac arrest, the odds of resuscitation fall
by nearly 10%. Delays of just a few minutes can make the difference.
Previously this was a skill reserved for paramedics, physicians,
and critical care nurses. With the development of Automated External
Defibrillators, or AEDs, individuals with very little medical
training can provide this potentially life-saving shock. This
life-saving tool can now be an important part of a workplace emergency
medical response plan.
The Life Support Training Center can assess your worksite for
general safety concerns with an emphasis on emergency medical
preparedness. The Life Support Training Center can aid in designing
and equipping an emergency medical responder team in your organization
including placement of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
in the workplace.
