Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. SCA usually causes death if it's not treated within minutes.
The recommended and appropriate treatment is an electrical discharge from an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), a portable device used to administer an electric shock to the heart and restore the heart to normal rhythm during Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are very simple and safe to use.
The American Heart Association estimates that 90% of people that suffer from SCA outside of a hospital and without proper treatment, dies.
9 out of 10 victims of SCA that receive a discharge from an AED during the first minute, survive!
Commotio Cordis is defined as an episode where the heart receives a strong blow from a person or an object in a certain moment of the cardiac cycle and it conducts the heart into a lethal arrhythmia known as ventricular Fibrillation (VF).
More often than not, these unfortunate and lethal episodes happen in popular sports events like baseball, football, soccer, cricket, karate, etc. where it is not common to find an AED. An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is the only proper treatment for an VF; This is one of the reasons why AED's need to be placed at stadiums, schools, gyms, and sites where extreme sports are practiced.
