Zoll Aed or automated external defibrillators is a life saving device that is used to deliver an electric shock to the victim of sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest can victimize a person of any age group or fitness level. During cardiac arrest, the victim’s heart starts to quiver and beat rapidly; it also ceases to pump blood effectively. Defibrillation helps in restoring the heart beat to a normal rate. As per American Heart Association (AHA) around 350,000 Americans suffer from sudden cardiac arrest and with timely help it is possible to save around 20,000 to 100,000 of them.
Early defibrillation is the key to saving a victim.
