Defibrillation The time from collapse to defibrillation is one of the most important determinants of survival from a sudden cardiac arrest. Automated External Defibrillators are devices that can identify cardiac rhythms that need a shock. They are easy to operate.

AED To treat VF (Ventricular Fibrillation), rescuers must be able to rapidly integrate CPR with use of the AED. To give the victim the best chance of survival, 3 actions must occur within the first moments of a cardiac arrest: activation of the emergency medical services (EMS) system, provision of CPR, and operation of an AED. When 2 or more rescuers are present, activation of EMS and initiation of CPR can

AED Timing The probability of successful defibrillation diminishes rapidly over time. So you need to use the AED as soon as possible.
Image of page 4
Shock First or CPR When any rescuer witnesses an out-of- hospital arrest and an AED is immediately available on-site, the rescuer should start CPR and use the AED as soon as possible. Healthcare providers who treat cardiac arrest in hospitals and other facilities with AEDs on-site should provide immediate CPR and should use the AED/defibrillator as soon as it is available. These recommendations are designed to support early CPR and early defibrillation, particularly when an AED is available within moments of the onset of SCA.

CPR first CPR should be performed while a defibrillator is being readied One cycle of CPR consists of 30 compressions and 2 breaths. When compressions are delivered at a rate of about 100 per minute, 5 cycles of CPR should take roughly 2 minutes
Image of page 6
Pulse Check-no After shock delivery, the rescuer should not delay resumption of chest compressions to recheck the rhythm or pulse. After about 5 cycles of CPR (about 2 minutes, although this time is not firm), ideally ending with compressions, the AED should then analyze the cardiac rhythm and deliver another shock if indicated If a non-shockable rhythm is detected, the AED should instruct the rescuer to resume CPR immediately, beginning with chest compressions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
