The Golden 5 Minutes
When a patient is in ventricular fibrillation, the survival rate decreases by 10 percent for every minute that passes, making early implementation of life-saving measures a key factor in separating life from death. Therefore, placing AEDs in the right place and providing quick access to the general public can effectively increase the “golden survival rate” of patients suffering from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Mindray, a professional AED company, today introduces some things to know about AEDs.
How to Perform Proper Resuscitation After Cardiac Arrest: Follow the Instructions and Take the Time
The new CPR and emergency cardiac care guidelines published by the American Heart Association in 2010 emphasize the importance of the Chains of Survival, which refers to the five interlocking steps of first aid, one of which is indispensable, and the order of which cannot be reversed, to improve the chances of resuscitation. The American Heart Association’s new CPR and emergency cardiac care guidelines, published in 2010, emphasize the importance of the Chains of Survival, which refers to the five interlocking steps of first aid. The so-called 5 rings are:
- Quick recognition and early help
- Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- Early defibrillation
- Early implementation of advanced cardiac resuscitation.
- The early provision of integrated resuscitative care.
All of these steps must be taken to improve the chances of resuscitation.
AEDs play an important role in the emergency process. When ventricular fibrillation occurs in a patient’s heart, resulting in loss of blood compression, Mindray’s high-quality AEDs can be used to restore the heart to its normal beating rate in a timely and correct manner.
