Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time. People of all ages — from infants to teens to older adults — can experience sudden cardiac arrest without warning. This means a cardiac arrest emergency could happen to you or someone nearby while you’re at work, at the gym, at a restaurant or anywhere people gather.
Therefore, it’s crucial that all businesses and public spaces be prepared with an on-site AED.
Fortunately, there are many AEDs on the market with varying features and price points. Just remember, the best AED is the one closest to you during an emergency.
