When a person is suffering from cardiac arrest, the heart is no longer beating effectively. The most common cardiac arrhythmia is ventricular fibrillation. This is a strong quivering of the heart caused by erratic electrical activity. A defibrillator will stop the erratic electrical impulses, and allow the heart to resume normal contractions.
It's important to act fast. The erratic electrical activity is the strongest at the onset of cardiac arrest. This electrical activity will subside quickly. A defibrillator must be used when electrical activity is present. Once it completely subsides, the AED will not be effective.
Immediate CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes will give the best chance of survival to a victim suffering sudden cardiac arrest. The chance of survival is about 80% if a defibrillator is available and used within 3 minutes of cardiac arrest. After 5 minutes without defibrillation, the chance of survival will substantially decrease to about 50%. The average EMS response time is about 9 minutes. At that point, the chance of survival is only about 20%.
Having an AED at home is the best way to treat cardiac arrest before EMS arrives. Now that this life-saving technology is available without a prescription, anyone can help save a life.
