At Foremost Medical Equipment, we care about preserving the health of your heart. This is why we’re so passionate about AED (Automatic External Defibrillators) and CPR education. As CPR & AED Awareness Week continues, we would like to take this chance to remind you of the importance of having quick and easy access to AEDs and CPR devices. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death among adults over 40 in the United States. The survival rate of a sudden cardiac arrest without intervention outside a hospital is less than 8 percent, while if an AED is utilized right away that rate jumps to 50 percent. Plain and simple, having these devices and being educated on them saves lives.
Please check out these resources for AED & CPR education. As they say,”The life you save may be your own”.
