Grant Funding for Defibrillators now Available to Everyone

San Diego, CA (OPENPRESS) February 2, 2006 -- Generous donations, corporate backing, and AED manufacturer sponsors have joined forces to give everyone the opportunity to afford a life saving portable AED machine. www.AEDGrant.com is launching a nationwide program that enables private and public businesses, agencies, institutions, and even individuals to apply for grant funding toward the purchase of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The sponsors of AEDGrant.com would like to see that portable AED machines become as commonplace as fire extinguishers.

The unfortunate truth is that almost every citizen of the United States, has been affected by Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Sudden Cardiac Arrest claims over 330,000 lives every year in the U.S. alone, making it the leading cause of natural death. Until the introduction of portable AED machines, a sudden cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival was extremely slim.

According to Matthew Henry of American CPR Training, the nations only centrally managed CPR, First Aid, and AED safety training group and a sponsor of AEDGrant.com, “survival rates for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests are estimated to be as low as 1-5%, but overall, when defibrillation is administered within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, survival rates can increase up to an astonishing 74%.” Because of these increased rates of survival, “We were the first national training organization to incorporate the ABCD’s (Airway, Breathing, Circulation & Defibrillation) into every CPR course we offer throughout the US. We now also co-sponsor this AED Grant program as part of our continuing commitment to AED education and deployment.” Read the entire article Online...

Saving lives at home

Once the tool of professionals, defibrillators get a push for public use

As the leading cause of death in the country, sudden cardiac arrest claims 340,000 lives each year.

According to the American Heart Association, that’s 600 deaths a day, 25 deaths an hour. The American Heart Association is working to make it possible to save more lives. Along with manufacturers who have put portable defibrillators on the market, the Heart Association is providing the public with information so that defibrillators can be used with minimal training.

For the public, this means something that was previously only available for use by medical professionals is now available for use in homes, where 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests occur.

The change was brought about by the advent of Automatic External Defibrillators, or AEDs. Unlike those used in hospitals, these devices do most of the work themselves. About all that’s required is placing patches on the victim’s chest, turning on the device and following instructions provided by the machine....
