Forms for assign deployment links, maintenance forms, registration forms, and more. The procedures recommended in this manual have been tested in actual deployment scenerio's for the past ten years in different evironments.
The AED was first deployed in the late 1990's in basic life support transport units and BLS fire departments. Since this new technology was automated it was decided that these devices should be deployed like fire extinguisher's in the public setting. If this device could be applied within four minutes or less of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest event the survival rate could increase to an estimated 89%.
The author of this manual is a 34-year veteran of the Emergency Medical Services in Florida. He has seen many incidents where he was not fast enough to reach a patient in SCA and didn't survive.
For each minute you are in sudden cardiac arrest you loose 10% of your life. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs to anyone, anywhere, at anytime with or without warning. Seconds count in this type of emergency. Who or what is going to save your life? Buy your copy today!
