The Importance of AED Programs
Effective treatment for cardiac arrest demands an immediate response from an individual who recognizes cardiac arrest, calls 911, starts cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and uses an automated external defibrillator (AED).
On average, less than 10% of individuals who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive, but that number jumps to 42% when a victim receives CPR and a defibrillating shock from a bystander using an AED.1 That’s why AEDs are increasingly found in schools, at sporting events, and in public buildings. In many cases, having an AED is mandated by law.

Good Samaritan Protection
To encourage the use of AEDs, all 50 states have enacted Good Samaritan laws to protect AED providers and lay responders. But having an AED is not enough to ensure Good Samaritan protection. Your AED program is subject to a host of requirements beyond having working batteries and pads that are not expired.
Let PlusTrac™ maintain a complete record of your Good Samaritan status and keep you in constant contact with the manufacturer of your AED.
