Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death in the United States, claiming an estimated 325,000 lives each year. Many of these deaths occur in individuals who appear outwardly healthy, but once SCA strikes, few make it even to the hospital. The best chance of survival comes from an AED at the site of the cardiac arrest.
APHE offers AEDs to all municipalities, companies, and organizations as a complement to our CPR training. AED training is an integral part of CPR training, but the AED training is useless without a properly functioning AED on site.

Philips HeartStart Onsite™ AED
Smart Technology, Only From Philips
At the core of all HeartStart Defibrillators is SMART Biphasic technology. The HeartStart Onsite Defibrillator's biphasic waveform delivers a highly effective defibrillation shock that is also gentle to the heart. No other external defibrillation therapy has been supported by more published clinical data.
SMART Analysis, a proven Philips technology for heart rhythm assessment, ensures that Onsite Defibrillator only shocks when it should. SMART Analysis automatically assesses the victim's heart rhythm and is designed not to deliver a shock unless the rhythm is determined to be shockable - even if the shock button is pressed. What's more, SMART Pads II enable the Onsite to keep pace with the responder by adjusting to their actions.
