Arrhythmia Alliance is proud to announce its partnership with the Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire. This partnership will bring about more lifesaving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the Gilford community. Gilford Police have previously saved a man after he went into sudden cardiac arrest at home.
Arrhythmia Alliance began its proprietary ‘Defibs Save Lives’ campaign after devastating reports on sudden cardiac arrest in the United States. Each year, approximately 360,000 people in the US suffer cardiac arrest with 9 out of 10 not surviving the occurrence. However, CPR and the use of an AED increases the chance of survival to over 50 percent.
Placing more AEDs in police vehicles and in publicly accessible locations can increase the chances of survival for those that suffer out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest.
