Why Law Enforcement Should Have AEDs?

When someone experiences Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), the initial action most people take is to call 911. For every minute that goes by without CPR and defibrillation, the chance of survival drops by 10 percent. With EMS response times averaging over 10 minutes sometimes law enforcement are the first ones to arrive. Having Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in squad cars can make the difference in saving a life by delivering a shock as soon as possible before EMS arrives.

AEDs in Squad Cars

Law enforcement vehicles do not respond from a centralized location the way fire and EMS does. This allows them to have quicker response times to the scene of an emergency. Law enforcement officers are able to begin the resuscitation process faster by having AEDs in their squad cars. AEDs are rugged, lightweight, and compact devices that take up minimal space in vehicles. These devices are also designed to be user-friendly and with clear instructions.

What Key Features of AEDs Should Law Enforcement Look For?

  • CPR Feedback - CPR plays a pivotal role in the resuscitation process when using an AED. AEDs are typically used by lay responders lacking the formal training in AED operation and delivering high quality CPR. This is where CPR feedback comes in. CPR feedback is a feature in some AEDs that provides real-time analysis of the compressions delivered and gives feedback on changes needed to adhere with AHA Guidelines.
  • Pediatric and Universal Electrode Pads -  The availability of pediatric and universal electrode pads is a critical feature for law enforcement. Law enforcement often finds themselves responding to calls involving individuals of different ages and sizes. Having pediatric pads or uni pads ensures that officers can effectively administer lifesaving treatment to pediatric patients without delay or hesitation.
  • Size and Durability - Law enforcement operates in diverse and often unpredictable environments, where equipment must be compact and rugged to withstand rigorous use and various weather conditions. A compact size ensures ease of portability allowing officers to store it in their patrol vehicles without impeding their work.

For traumatic bleeding emergencies where a tourniquet can not be used, such as injuries to the armpits, shoulders, or chest, it is important to have a bleeding control kit with the necessary tools to control life threatening bleeding.

  • First Aid Kits - Equipping law enforcement with first aid kits ensures they are prepared to provide crucial medical assistance during accidents, incidents, or encounters.

  • SAM XT Tourniquets - Tourniquets are an essential tool for law enforcement due to their ability to provide immediate control over severe bleeding, potentially saving lives.
