There should be no doubt that the prevalence of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) is only continuing to grow in places like universities, shopping centers, airports and more.

According to a recent survey commissioned by CardioReady, that growth now has people expecting to find AEDs available in emergency situations like sudden cardiac arrest. Among the survey’s findings:

  • More than 3 in 4 Americans expect to find AEDs in airports.
  • Approximately 7 in 10 Americans expect to find AEDs in fitness clubs and stadiums.
  • More than 3 in 5 Americans expect to find AEDs in schools as well as shopping malls.

Code Blue, the industry leading manufacturer of emergency communication solutions, is doing its part to prevent deaths from sudden cardiac arrest by offering a pair of Help Points® that have the option of a temperature-controlled integrated housing to accept an AED device:  the CB 1-s and CB 2-e.

In addition to providing fast access to the AED compartment, both the CB 1-s blue light pedestal and CB 2-e call box include a hands-free, high-tech emergency speakerphone, which can be used to quickly and effectively communicate with first responders.

The CB 1-s and CB 2-e with AED Housing are excellent choices for areas where timely response to sudden cardiac arrest is critical.
