CPR and AED

NPSGraphic

I think by now most of us have heard of CPR and AED. What is it?  “CPR” is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and “AED” is Automated External Defibrillator.

Why is it important? Sudden cardiac arrest can happen suddenly for many reasons. It is important to know what to do when it happens. A good tool is called the “Chain of survival”

1. Early access

Call 911 Immediately…the sooner Advanced care arrives the chance are better for survival. This should be done within seconds.

2. Early CPR

Chest compressions and rescue breathing at a rate of 30:2…refer to the American Heart Association guidelines

3. Early defibrillation

Automated External Defibrillator is a small machine normally located in public places such as airport terminals and malls. It is a self functioning system that will prompt the user what to do.

Refer to the American Heart Association guidelines

4. Early advanced care

The Golden Hour. It is important to have the person be seen by advanced care as soon as possible for the best recovery chances.
