Immetech assists on AED production to save lives
With its extensive medical production experience Immetech was honored to assist Rescond Medical Co.,LTD in producing the automatic external defibriliator (AED) that makes a crucial difference in reviving citizens from cardiac arrest. Cardiac arrest is one of the most serious cardiac abnormalities for humans; it’s when the heart stops beating suddenly, which then causes a lack of blood flow to the brain and other organs; human life will end without prompt intervention. When someone is suffering cardiac arrest, there is a crucial four-minute stage; during this time half of cardiac patients can have their lives saved with resuscitation. It occurs frequently in society, with Healthline reporting more than half a million people every year in USA experiencing it and China reports that it causes 540,000 deaths annually.
What is an AED and how can it help cardiac arrest patients?
An AED can save lives when it’s used with high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) during the four minute period of cardiac arrest. AED is a portable medical device that can diagnose specific arrhythmias and guide emergency staff to administer electric shocks for defibrillation. It’s also known as an automatic external shock device, automatic shock device, automatic defibrillator and cardiac defibrillator. AEDs can also be used by non-medical specialists to help those citizens experiencing a cardiac arrest.
Fatal real-life cases which lacked AED equipment
Due to AEDs not being readily available in local communities, questions have been raised on many deaths that could have been avoided if one was present on the scene. For example, in 2019 Taiwanese-Canadian model and actor Godfrey Gao died while recording a television show that was not equipped with first aid equipment including AED. Another specific example is a citizen from Shanghai, China, who suffered a cardiac arrest from an asthma attack when an AED was not available at the time to resuscitate them. On-board medical defibrillators are complicated to operate and only for use by medical staff, however if AED devices are deployed much more at community level in public places, then more ordinary people could have the chance to rescue people experiencing cardiac arrest.
How can the general public help?
Citizens can help save lives from cardiac arrest by following these steps:
- Learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- Understand how to use an AED
- Promote the configuration of public first-aid equipment
- Master the courage to rescue people in emergency situations to save lives
