AED Investment for Small Company Pays Off

AED Investment for Small Company Pays Off

August 6, 2008¬–TOLEDO–Three years ago, Thermadyn, a company with 30 employees in Sylvania, Ohio, invested in an automated external defibrillator (AED). The investment paid off two months ago, when Wayne Martin, CFO, used it to save the life of Roy Rosler, a 72-year-old shipping supervisor.

Rosler later said he had no idea that he had any heart trouble--until he dropped dead. The fact that he’s still here, Rosler said, is nothing short of a miracle. He thought it was peculiar there was an AED at the office. Little did he know this small medical device kept in the office kitchen would save his life.
