It has been a LONG year of product shortages but AEDs are finally available. And just in time! We are seeing an incredible increase in sudden cardiac arrests. There has been a 119% increase from 2020-2022. It seems that incidents are increasing daily. Heart attacks are up too. We are seeing these events in the 50 and older crowd, of course. But what is even scarier is that we are seeing these cardiac events in younger and younger people. Even teens! The trend began before COVID and has skyrocketed since. There are lots of possible reasons as to the why but the bottom line is that it IS happening.
What do we need to do? We need to take CPR training so that our skills are fresh. We also need the equipment available to save lives. Keep in mind that for every 60 seconds – from the time a person collapses to the time CPR is started – there is a 10% decrease in chance of survival. CPR does save lives! CPR and use of an AED can DOUBLE the chance of a positive outcome, especially in sudden cardiac arrest events.
Any public area visited by a lot of people should have an AED in place and people trained to use it.
