Since a patient’s likelihood of survival can increase to 90% with effective cardiac resuscitation and the use of AEDs, they should be placed in public spaces to protect the lives of the general population. As a result, an AED purchase for your place of business can significantly improve the effectiveness of the response and the success rate of resuscitation.
Instructions for using an AED
Check the patient’s breathing and attentiveness while inspecting the surroundings and ensuring everyone is secure. Start CPR immediately if the patient is not breathing or is only breathing when near to passing out. Make an emergency call as soon as possible if the patient is not responding.
AEDs are typically used with the “Listen to it, do with it” philosophy, never skipping or delaying any stages during a procedure; always listen to the AED audio prompts.
Attach the electrode sheet and wait for the AED to decide whether the patient’s heart rhythm requires electrical defibrillation. To avoid destroying the equipment used to measure the patient’s heart rhythm, refrain from touching the patient.
Ensure the patient is immobile before pushing the discharge button to perform the procedure if defibrillation is recommended. Because the defibrillation method involves electrical discharge, refrain from touching the patient and forcefully advise onlookers to keep their distance to prevent electrocution.
Before the AED examines the rhythm, CPR should be administered once again for two minutes if it is decided that defibrillation is not recommended.
Don’t turn off the AED while it’s in operation; kindly don’t remove the electrodes; and pay carefully to its voice instructions until the patient awakens or an ambulance arrives.
