| Every minute of every day, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) claims
another victim. SCA occurs when the arteries that supply blood to the heart
become blocked, the flow of blood which carries oxygen to the heart is slowed
or stopped, and the muscle fibers contract chaotically rather than in synch
with each other as they normally do. SCA survival rates increase dramatically
when there is early access to a defibrillator.
How defibrillators work
Manual defibrillators work by giving the heart a controlled electric shock, forcing
all the heart
muscles to contract at
once, and, hopefully jolting it back into a regular rhythm.
Historically, only trained medical professionals were able to interpret the heart
devices. However, today's new Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) use
embedded computer chips
to analyze the rhythms
instantly and accurately, making it possible for non-medical professionals to
administer the same vital service
an accidental shock.
