Why Every School needs aeds

In the United States, sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of fatality, affecting approximately 356,000 individuals annually. This condition can affect anyone at any time, leading to immediate collapse, unresponsiveness, and an inability to breathe normally. Without prompt intervention to restore a regular heart rhythm, SCA can become fatal within minutes. This highlights the need for Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in our communities, particularly in education institutions.

Despite AEDs being a crucial life saving tool, less than half of U.S. states have legislation in place requiring them in schools. There is a compelling argument as to why every school should have an AED on site and here are four reasons why:

School aged children are just as vulnerable to sca as adults

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can affect people of all ages, including seemingly healthy children and teens. According to the American Heart Association, Annually 7,000 people under the age of 18 are affected by this condition.

Aeds save lives

When it comes to SCA every minute counts. Every minute that a person goes without defibrillation their chances of survival drop by 7-10% making rapid defibrillation vital in saving a life. Having an AED readily available in schools can help increase the chances of survival for SCA victims before professional help can arrive.

aeds protect both students and staff

The potential lifesaving impact of AEDs is not limited to students; it extends to the entire school staff. There are many staff members present throughout the day such as educators, security, custodial, and even visitors such as parents. According to the AHA, studies have shown the majority of cardiac arrests that occur on school premises involve adults.

accessibility and ease of use

One of the most compelling arguments for having AEDs in schools is their ease of use and user friendly design. AEDs provide clear instructions that guide users through the process, making it possible for anyone, including teachers and even students, to administer a potentially life saving shock. This ease of use allows for immediate action to be taken following a cardiac emergency.

The presence of these life saving devices in schools can make all the difference in emergency situations, offering a real chance at survival for victims of SCA. It's a clear reminder of the value of preparedness and the critical role that AEDs play in safeguarding our schools.
