Sudden cardiac arrest - every second counts
Sudden cardiac arrests are caused by life threatening fibrillation, and it can happen anytime and anywhere: at home, at work or out on the playing field. Initial care for the patient includes cardio pulmonary resuscitation [CPR], but on its own, its not enough to stop fibrillation. It can only be halted through early defibrillation, that is, treatment using a controlled impulse that is delivered automatically or manually by a professional defibrillator.
When a cardiac arrest occurs the patients heart frequently jumps out of normal rhythm to an abnormal rhythm known as Ventricular Fibrillation. The Defibrillator is able to detect this rhythm and if indicated provides a medically controlled electric shock to jump the abnormal rhythm back normal. Sometimes many shocks may be required and the operator is guided by visual and voice prompts provided by the defibrillator.
There is no way of preventing the onset of a sudden cardiac arrest. But the consequences can be catastrophic. The sufferer onle has a few precious minutes left for a chance of survival.
Using an automatic external defibrillator [AED] greatly increases the chances of surviving life threatening fibrillation.
