    Introduction of Course

    Every year thousands of people die of sudden cardiac arrest. Many of these deaths could be prevented with immediate and appropriate care. AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators), when used within the first 3-5 minutes of a person suffering a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can dramatically increase a victims chance of survival from currently what is currently less 5% to as much as 70% and higher with a defibrillator on the scene.

    Pre Quiz


    An automatic external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm.


    Pulseless ventricular tachycardia (VT)

    Ventricular fibrillation (VF)

    Defibrillation depolarizes a critical mass of the heart muscle, terminates the arrhythmia, and allows normal sinus rhythm to be re-established by the body's natural pacemaker, in the SA node of the heart.
