Automated external defibrillator (AED).
Lake City Fire Equipment sells and services all major brands of automated external defibrillator.
While some cardiac events are treatable with effective Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) alone, others require a combination of effective CPR and the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver a lifesaving shock within the first few minutes of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In both cases, effective CPR contributes to an increase of survival rates of up to 75%.
More than a simple AED, the HeartSine samaritan® PAD 450P with integrated CPR Rate Advisor™ provides real-time visible and audible feedback to the rescuer on the rate of chest compressions during an SCA resuscitation.
