The Power to Save Lives is in Your Hands
Empower Your School to Save Lives
Discover why schools rely on Powerheart® AEDs
Parents count on school administrators to keep their children safe – in class, in the halls, and on the athletic fields. By becoming your school’s advocate for automated external defibrillators (AEDs), you are taking an important step toward protecting them from needless sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) deaths.
Doing the math
Every year, approximately 369,000 people in the United States fall victim to SCA, including 7,000 children. Data estimate that one in 50 high schools has an SCA incident – either student or faculty – on school grounds each year. And in the United States alone, one young athlete dies every three days from an unrecognized cardiovascular discorder.
Many SCA victims are without symptoms or prior cardiac conditions. The only effective treatment for SCA is a shock from a defibrillator, administered as quickly as possible. The sooner a victim is treated with a defibrillator, the better the victim’s chance of survival.
According to American Heart Association, defibrillation within three minutes of SCA raises the chance of survival to more than 70 percent.
The critical factor? Having an AED within reach. Fast.
In an emergency, Powerheart AEDs are easy to use
When SCA strikes, every second is critical. We designed our Powerheart G5 and G3 AEDs to help minimize rescue times. When the rescuer applies the pads, the device analyzes the heart rhythm and delivers the shock when needed.
These AEDs are easy to use for almost anyone and require minimal training. For SCA victims, a Powerheart AED – and you – may save a life.
Funding school AED programs
We’ve seen hundreds of elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities put life-saving AED programs in place – even during times of tight budgets. You can do it, too. Ask your Cardiac Science Certified AED Specialist about grants, fundraising, and other financing options.
The law is on your side
Recognition and awareness that AEDs can save the lives of students, staff, and visitors in schools are growing. As a result, states like New York, Illinois, and Pennsylvania require schools to implement AED programs. There are federal and state Good Samaritan laws that protect citizens from liability when AEDs are used in good faith to save a life. Cardiac Science also includes an indemnification agreement, among the strongest in the industry, with each Powerheart AED.
