Did you know that around 475,000 people in America die of cardiac arrest every year? It can be heartbreaking to see a loved one going through this, especially if you are waiting for an ambulance. However, a device such as an AED can increase survival chances when used within three minutes.
HeartHero is one of the leading manufacturers of AEDs, and here is everything you need to know about this device.
An AED is a medical device that is usually powered by batteries. The device includes defibrillator pads used to deliver currents so the heart rhythm can go back to normal. Here are three things that can happen during a cardiac arrest:
An AED will check the rhythm of the heart and then deliver a shock accordingly. The best part is that one does not need a professional because artificial intelligence (AI) in the device will tell the rescuer when to deliver a shock.
If you have loved ones in your home with poor heart health and are at risk for cardiac arrest, an AED is an ideal choice. It will allow you to promptly save your loved one in the face of danger without the need for professional help. The AED by HeartHero can also call an ambulance within a short time so that the patient can get professional help too.
So, if you need some peace of mind and help with a loved one in your home, an AED is the perfect investment in their health. HeartHero plans to save many lives through this device so that people can stay with their loved ones.
