Cardiac arrest is one of the major emergencies that threaten human life. The most common initial rhythm of a witnessed cardiac arrest is ventricular fibrillation (VF), and the most effective treatment for VF is electrical defibrillation. Otherwise, chest compressions alone are unlikely to convert VF to a normal rhythm. The success of defibrillation decreases rapidly over time, by about 7-10% per minute, and the survival rate can be improved by more than 70% with electrical defibrillation using an automated external defibrillator AED within the first 3 minutes of cardiac arrest. Therefore, for cardiac arrest, defibrillation with the correct AED device is the key to first aid. As a professional AED company, Mindray introduces its innovative, easy-to-use AED products.
The importance of having AEDs in public places.
Compared to fixed AEDs in hospitals, which require professional medical staff to operate, mobile, easy-to-use AEDs are more effective in public settings.
On the other hand, public places are crowded and sudden cardiac arrests can occur at any time. In an emergency, it is more important to be found, diagnosed, and start resuscitation in the first place than to dry up and wait for paramedics to arrive.
Before professional emergency personnel arrives at the scene, bystanders are allowed to seize the “golden four minutes” to save the cardiac arrest patient as early as possible. At this point, the role of Mindray’s mobile AEDs comes into play.
