Are Co-ops required to have AED’s?
In most states, AEDs are not required for businesses, but it is highly recommended that they have one on site. AEDs can be the difference between life and death in the event of a cardiac emergency, so it is important to have one readily available.
All 50 states and the District of Columbia have Good Samaritan laws that protect people who use AEDs in the event of an emergency. These laws provide some legal protection for individuals who offer assistance to a victim, even if they are not experts in first aid or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
How hard is the training for an AED?
The AED for Co-ops are very easy to use and the training only takes a few minutes. The AED will walk you through each step of the rescue, so even if you have never used an AED before, you will be able to help save someone’s life.
Can using an AED make the cardiac event worse?
When someone is having a cardiac emergency, every second counts. That is why using an AED can be so important. But can the AED make the cardiac event even worse?
No, the AED will not make the cardiac event worse AEDs are designed to only shock the heart if it is in a life-threatening arrhythmia. AEDs will not shock the heart if it is beating normally.
How much does an AED cost?
AEDs can vary in price, but they typically start at around $800. There are a few different types of AEDs on the market. You will want to purchase an AED that is specific to your needs.
With how expansive many Co-ops there are it is important that there are some AED’s in the workplaces where the co-op might operate. A good practice would be one AED per floor, stored in high traffic areas.
