Importance of AED Programs
The American Heart Association strongly encourages companies and organizations
to implement AED programs to increase the chances of survival for people who
have heart-related emergencies. With an AED program, a person will be better
prepared to save the life of a coworker, friend, family member or stranger. With a
good implementation plan and proper training, one can help save more lives.
The goal of every AED program is to deliver defibrillation to a cardiac arrest victim within
three to five minutes after collapse.
