When someone is the victim of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), their survival depends on high-quality CPR and a rescuer with an AED. When there’s a call for help, will you be ready?
Designed for Unexpected Heroes
The latest guidelines from resuscitation councils worldwide are clear: Successful defibrillation must be supported with high-quality CPR. The AED’s first heart analysis is critical. If it calls for no shock, only CPR can lead to a shockable rhythm on the next analysis. CPR provides a struggling heart with oxygenated blood needed to help restore a normal rhythm.
All ZOLL AEDs guide you through the process of performing high-quality CPR and will, if needed, deliver a potentially lifesaving shock to the heart. With a ZOLL AED and quick action, you could help avert tragedy.
Research shows that the probability of survival goes up dramatically when CPR is performed and when an AED is applied before an ambulance arrives²
