Once every two minutes, someone dies from sudden cardiac arrest. It can strike anyone at anytime. Often, there is no previous history of heart trouble. Here's an excellent example.
The chance of surviving an out of hospital sudden cardiac arrest is less than 5%. If an automated external defibrillator (AED) is applied to the patient within the first two minutes of the arrest, the chance of survival can be as high as 80%. Anyone, trained or untrained, can use an AED.

**The American Heart Association recommends investing in a spare set of pads. In an emergency, if AED pads are dropped on a plush carpet, or dusty ground, they may no longer adhere to the patient. Having a spare set of pads ensures that you can use your AED unit in the event the first set is compromised.
**Pediatric pads (Onsite), or a pediatric key (FRx) allow you to use your AED on children between the ages of 1-8 years old or under 55 lbs. Adult pads can be used on a child but pediatric pads will deliver a shock that is adjusted for the smaller size of the child.
