How quickly can you access a defibrillator to save a life?

In front of millions, the importance of having quick access to a defibrillator was clearly demonstrated in the Euro’s Denmark vs Finland match. 

Never before has the world been made so aware that anyone can suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, even the young and super fit. But did you know that each minute of delay after a cardiac arrest, reduces the patient’s chance of survival by 10%.  Every second really does count…

Aero Healthcare are the master distributors of the most technically advanced defibrillators in the UK and have supplied the largest roll out of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) across the country.

With the ability to deploy defibrillators to multiple locations, the company is currently responding to and fulfilling an unprecedented level of demand for information, training, and defibrillator equipment.  But most importantly, backed by global purchasing power, Aero Healthcare is providing an assured supply with reliability, as they champion the company mission of ‘reducing preventable deaths.’ 

Selecting the correct defibrillators for multiple locations is complex. Aero Healthcare’s specialist teams take time to fully understand every individual requirement, pairing each unit’s location and operating environment with the most suitable defibrillator features, to ensure that the device provided really is both fit for purpose and quick to deploy.

The Arrhythmia Alliance state that “sudden cardiac arrest strikes without warning, regardless of age, killing 100,000 Brits every year” and the British Heart Foundation attribute 84% of these as being outside of a healthcare setting. Statistics also show that the survival rate in the UK after a cardiac arrest is only 5% to 10%, which when compared to Seattle that proudly boasts a 60% survival rate, is appalling. 

As industry experts, Aero Healthcare provide transport networks, manufacturers, the construction industry, businesses, and end users with a complete solution for top of the range defibrillators, coupled with experienced and ongoing support. 

This includes the dispatch of installers and maintenance teams to any location in the country, the provision of software updates by advanced connectivity and the remote management of large defibrillator fleets. 

The supply of housing cabinets, mobile protective Peli cases and a range of cost effective and simple management solutions are part of the packages offered, along with guidance on the government funding for defibrillators scheme.

Different AED functionalities are required to fit with a wide range of diverse and complex location variables. Aero Healthcare’s longstanding partnership with Stryker, the manufacturers of the extensive HeartSine and LifePak ranges, guarantees all needs can be catered for.  A tailored service from start to finish that is coupled with an extensive support package in the form of installation, training and technical support is standard. 

Although Aero Healthcare provide extensive training as part of their complete service offer, many of their defibrillators are designed to be used without prior instruction. 

Easy to follow instructions with just one or two buttons to press, run across the complete easy to use portfolio and benefits can include intuitive visual and verbal prompting, and the fastest charging times available on the market, crucial when every second counts. 

Oscar Palmer, Commercial Director of Aero Healthcare UK, said “currently the UK is way behind other countries when it comes to the provision of defibrillators in public places.  And, the UK does not currently have enough AEDs in place to improve these statistics.”

“This needs to change. Now, with the importance of these units being so clearly highlighted, we are delighted to see businesses recognizing the urgent need for correctly assessed defibrillator requirements, and we are proud to be enabling the lifesaving change.”

Aero HealthCare’s defibrillator provision includes the LifePak CR2’s superior technology which allows lifesaving shocks to be delivered in more cases than any other device.  

A significantly enhanced impedance range (skin resistance range) enables the delivery of an effective shock, regardless of chest size, skin tone, muscle build or age.  All vital considerations that can be easily overlooked, and all key markers for every defibrillator as they analyse the need to deliver, or not, a shock to save a life. 

Statistics also show that more children die from a cardiac arrest than in a fire incident, and units with appropriate sensitivity and pediatric specificity are integrated as part of the portfolio. And for additional support and reassurance in a cardiac arrest emergency, some defibrillators can automatically provide guidance for CPR compression efficiency and include a metronome to help regulate the compression speed.

Installing the confidence to act swiftly, can save a life. Even without training!
