Thousands of students and teachers are sitting in schools every day, studying, teaching, playing sports, making music and playing in the schoolyard. Sudden cardiac arrest can strike anyone at any time, so direct and quick access to defibrillators is very important. Resuscitation measures need to be taken before the emergency services arrive to increase the victim's chances of survival. A defibrillator can provide ideal support here.
When choosing the right AED for school buildings, the most important factors to consider are ease of use, resuscitation feedback and the possibility of resuscitation for children.
The device should also be kept easily accessible in a wall-mounted or outdoor cabinet so that everyone knows where to find the defibrillator.
