AED vs. CPR

AED vs. CPR

  1. Only very rarely will CPR bring a victim back without use of electricity and / or drugs. And because your probability of being brought back declines every minute after your arrest, Having an AED with you really bends the odds in your favor.

It's smart to insure against catastrophic outcomes.

  1. There is fire insurance to replace your home or goods if they burn
  2. There is life insurance to replace part of a paycheck when that person dies
  3. There is auto insurance to help repair or replace a wrecked car.
  4. ,,,and an AED provides the best available chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest!

Thought for the day: It's so much better to have an AED and never need it than to need it and not have it.
