Should Retailers be Required to Carry AEDs?

The question of a retail store’s responsibility to carry an AED became big news after involvement by the California Supreme Court. A recent article written by a Defibtech employee investigates the pros and cons of retail stores carrying life-saving defibrillators.

Current trends suggest that AEDs, such as Defibtech’s own Lifeline AED, are becoming an expected site at large stores. As the article notes:

“Having an AED on the premises, rather than depending on EMS to travel to a retail store, is important because experts recognize “speed to shock” is the most important aspect of AED lifesaving. Up to 90% of sudden cardiac arrest victims receiving AED treatment within two minutes survive, but the chances of survival decrease with each passing minute. By 10 minutes, most die.”

Medical Device Depot carries defibrillators from all major manufacturers, including Defibtech. For more information on this device, or to make a purchase, call 877-646-3300 or visit Medical Device Depot’s website.

Heart Disease: Are women now more at risk than men?

Nasiff Cardiocard Mobile

A recent article released by Nasiff notes the increasing risk of heart disease in older women when compared to men of similar age. In particular:

“Statistics from 2009 show that breast cancer was directly related to the deaths of 40,467 women in the US, while heart disease accounted for 292,188 women. Moreover, the rate of heart disease in women under the age of 55 is rising year on year, despite overall reductions in the total number of people nationwide dying from the disease.”

While healthy eating and regular exercise is important, regular doctors office visits and a greater understanding of the risks of heart disease are equally important. Regular checkups and monitoring of vital signs, including blood pressure and cardiopulmonary health are important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
