An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a small, portable device that is designed to be used by ANYONE, not just medical professionals or paramedics to save someone’s life, in the event of a cardiac arrest. An AED delivers a shock to the heart, to help the heart, beat again when a person is in cardiac arrest. Without this very important shock, the heart will not regain a normal heart rhythm.
You do not need to be a qualified paramedic or medical professional to use the Heartsine Samaritan AED, because this AED is manufactured to be used by medical and non-medical persons. The Heartsine Samaritan AED has clear visual & audio prompts, to make it very user friendly to use. You just need to listen to what the AED tells you to do. You do not need to be scared that you will unnecessarily shock the heart, as the Heartsine Samaritan AED, has a build-in cardiogram to assess the heart, first, BEFORE it tells you to push the shock button. No unnecessary shock will ever be delivered, making this AED very safe, very easy to use.
What will you do when 1 of your household members goes into cardiac arrest? Is there someone in your household that is in a higher risk group to go into cardiac arrest, such as diagnosed heart condition, underlying heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, extreme work stress or personal stress?
Without an AED present, the person that goes into cardiac arrest will not survive. When a person is in cardiac arrest, he/she has only 4 minutes left to survive, no paramedic can be there within the golden 4 minutes.
Do you want your family members to survive cardiac arrest? If your answer is yes, ensure that you have an AED in your household to help that family member to have a fighting chance to survive.
