MEDwheels supports the position that improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year.
Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Over 350,000 people will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year.
It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and at any age. An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background.
The MEDwheels believes that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.
