Medical healthcare has seen a lot of changes in the last couple of years. These changes have not only affected the way patients are treated but also how technology has improved it. Many different healthcare machines are being invented and upgraded every year, which has helped in detecting diseases way before it fully develops. These machines are great at detecting infection and conditions at a microscopic level and preventing them from even spreading. Using technology, scientists have been able to develop and produce medicines and vaccinations in masses. Such use of technology has helped prevent epidemics and diseases from spreading faster through air and water. Contributing to this field of medical science is Cardiac Science, which aims to reduce the delay in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and life-saving defibrillation by ensuring automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are accessible and straightforward to use.
Cardiac Science aims towards providing these automated external defibrillators (AEDs) publically so that it saves someone’s life in case of emergency. The company started deploying more than 4000 AED in San Diego County, which was the first of a kind movement by the company. The AED’s were reported to save more than 129 lives reducing the time between cardiac arrest and the treatment for it. These AEDs have instructions printed on them and are very easy to use. If any person had a cardiac arrest in a public place and the AED’s are present nearby, any person can easily use it without any expert help. Since then, Cardiac Science has been trying to add AEDs in public places. Also, they have held many events at multiple locations to educate people about these AEDs and how it can be used in a specific situation. They inform the people on how these AEDs can help to save someone’s life in case there is no time to wait for an ambulance to arrive.
Cardiac Science has headquarters in Deerfield, Wisconsin, just east of Madison, as well as operations in Denmark, France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, and the United Kingdom. They have installed a base of over 500,000 units in nearly 100 countries worldwide. The company has also tried to encourage people to keep the AED’s in their offices, homes, and other places. The company website also provides online assistance, where they can connect with people face to face through TeamViewer software. It can help a person in times of desperation to use the AED’s properly.
These initiatives by Cardiac Science have made a lot of impact in different fields and have made a lot of difference in saving lives. Their cause is supported by the government of many countries and has installed these AEDs in many locations. This contribution by Cardiac Science has made a significant impact in saving lives. With continuous growth, the company seems to be expanding and bringing out more products related to cardiac health. The constant support from the local government bodies and the general public is sure to increase the support for the great work Cardiac Science is doing.
