Defibrillator - AED
What is an AED?
The abbreviation AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is a portable device used in CPR when someone is in cardiac arrest.
What does an AED do?
In a cardiac arrest, the heart usually does not stop completely. It just seems so. The heart chambers are stimulated very quickly and chaotically, so that they no longer contract. This is called ventricular fibrillation. An AED is then needed to reset the heart and allow it to beat normally again by means of an electric shock. This resetting of the heart rhythm is called defibrillation.
Buying an AED
All AEDs that you buy in the Netherlands have a CE mark and are safe and reliable. An AED can differ in ease of use.
Buy an AED? What are the benefits of an AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a life-saving device used in emergency situations when someone goes into sudden cardiac arrest. It is a device that can make the difference between life and death. But why should you, as a company, municipality or neighborhood, consider purchasing an AED? Cardiac arrest can happen anywhere, at any time, and the first few minutes are crucial to the victim's survival rate. An AED ensures that an immediate response can be taken, which significantly increases the chance of survival. In addition, resuscitation with the hands alone is not always sufficient to restore normal heart rhythm. An AED can do this by delivering an electric shock.
Order an AED as a company or as a municipality/neighborhood?
Owning an AED is not only essential for medical institutions. Businesses, regardless of size, can also benefit from having an AED. Think of employees, customers or visitors who suddenly suffer cardiac arrest in the workplace. By having an AED on hand, a company shows its commitment to the safety and well-being of everyone in the building. Owning an AED is also vital for municipalities and neighborhoods. The faster we can respond in an emergency, the greater the chance that a life will be saved. With an AED at an accessible location in the municipality or neighborhood, the local community can count on an extra layer of protection.
Which AED do I choose? What types of AED? Semi- or fully automatic defibrillator
When choosing an AED, you should consider several factors, including the type and brand of the device. There are two main types of AEDs: semi-automatic and fully automatic. A semi-automatic AED guides the rescuer through the process and tells when it is necessary to press the shock button. A fully automatic AED, on the other hand, analyzes the victim's heart rhythm and automatically delivers a shock if necessary, without having to press a button.
