Over 7 million lives are claimed by Sudden Cardiac Arrest each year. In the United States, 1,000 Americans are lost to Sudden Cardiac Arrest every day, making it the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause for Americans over 40.
Can we change these numbers to save more lives? Yes. At SOS Technologies, we absolutely believe we can.
It starts by taking on Sudden Cardiac Arrest where it tends to “live” most – close to home. That’s right. Over 65% of SCA incidents happen in the home, most of which are not equipped to handle a heart emergency.
Now, we know that after 10 minutes, very few sudden cardiac arrest victims survive and on average, EMS teams can take 6 to 12 minutes to arrive on the scene. Do the math. If we want to dramatically increase the number of lives saved each year, we all need a defibrillator specifically made for the home: The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator.
If You Thought Only First Responders Can Operate An AED…Think Again.
The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is designed for a life-saving rescue in the home by an ordinary person in an extraordinary moment. Here’s what you can expect right out of the box from one of the easiest AEDs to use that you can buy:
Life Guidance voice instructions guide you, step-by-step, through the entire treatment process – from administering CPR to the placement of the pads to deliver a life-saving shock.
Integrated SMART Pads let you go at your own pace as you place the pads on the victim’s skin and adapt the HeartStart Home Defibrillator’s instructions to your actions.
An AED that works for patients of any age, including infants and children.
Philips’ patented Quick Shock technology, among the fastest in its classes, enables you to deliver shock treatment after CPR, typically within 8 seconds.
The first and only AED you can buy without a prescription.
The Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator is not only easy to use in an emergency – it makes maintenance a breeze as well by automatically running comprehensive daily self-tests. The device will alert you when batteries need to be replaced to ensure reliable performance if and when the need arises.
Just as you maintain a working smoke detector or fire extinguisher while hoping you never need it, having a defibrillator in your home can prepare you for an emergency and help save a life.
