Need for Accessible AEDs Continues to Persist

Sudden cardiac arrest continues to account for thousands of deaths annually, prompting many locations to install Automated External Defibrillators on site to provide assistance during medical emergencies.

According to a recent article published by Occupational Health & Safety Magazine, AEDs could be even more prevalent.

 “Having an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) nearby when SCA strikes increases the survival rate by nearly 70 percent. This begs the question, why don’t we see more AEDs? While fire extinguishers are required everywhere, most paramedics and firefighters will tell you they’ve used an AED far more often than a fire extinguisher.”

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

In addition to providing fast access to the AED, both the CB 1-s and CB 2-e feature a hands-free 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.
