AEDs for Businesses
Having an AED at your business or office increases the chance of survival for your staff in the event of a cardiac emergency. The average person spends one-third of their life at work, making preparation for emergencies, such as sudden cardiac arrest(SCA), essential. An AED can be the difference between life or death and should always be a part of a business emergency plan.
Workplaces with high physical demands or high-stress levels can make someone even more susceptible to sudden cardiac arrest. California Medical equipment will ensure that your business has the resources it needs to implement a compliant and effective response program.

- The delay in treatment caused by waiting for emergency responders (approximately 9 minutes) could result in death. 95% of people who experience sudden cardiac arrest die as a result, mainly because of delay in treatment.

How Will an AED Make My Business Safer?
Does anyone in your workplace know what to do in the event a co-worker, customer, or visitor collapses? It is very possible this person is suffering from sudden cardiac arrest and could die within minutes.
Having an AED easily accessible within 3-5 minutes from a person suffering from SCA can mean the difference between life and death.
People who go into sudden cardiac arrest may have no warning it is going to occur and no history of heart disease. SCA does not discriminate. Young or old, fit or unfit, healthy or ill, it can happen to anyone.
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 420,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur every year in the United States. About 10,000 of those occur while at work. Unfortunately, more than 95 percent of the victims die before they reach the hospital.
The use of an AED increases overall survival rates by 60 percent. The average response time for emergency medical services after calling 911 is 8-12 minutes. Initiating CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes of collapse, before EMS arrives, dramatically improves chances of survival. According to OSHA, every minute that passes without CPR or defibrillation decreases a victim’s chance of survival by 10%.
Based on these statistics, it is clear that having an AED on the premises can make your place of business safer. As more of these devices have become accessible, they have established a proven track record of saving lives in public places and in the workplace.
