SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2016 WHO report on 'Cause of death in the world' revealed that heart related deaths accounted for 31% of the total deaths, costing 1.7 million lives.
As the number of death caused by cardiac arrest is increasing, the demand for automated external defibrillator (AED) is increasing; many countries started implementing regulations mandating AED installation. AED is an emergency medical device that applies an instant shock to artificially make the heart operate again.
According to 2015 American Heart Association's Guidelines, the survival rate of patients with heart attack is 90% after 1 minute, 80% after 2 minutes, and less than 10% after 9 minutes. However, using AED devices and CPR increase the survival rate by maximum 5 times, maintaining 90% survival rate after 1~2 minutes. Hence, using AED within the golden time of 4 minutes saves lives. Thus, public demand for AEDs in spaces with concentrated populations are increasing, in order to guarantee the golden time.
