AEDs are becoming more and more popular in dentist offices. With having an AED on-site there have been improved patient outcomes in the event of cardiac arrest. EMS Superstore carries a wide variety of AEDs, perfect for any sized dentist’s office. We also carry a wide range of accessories, such as AED cabinets and wall mounts, to help you keep your AED safe and accessible.
What is an AED and what does it do?
An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is a device used to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm. When someone experiences cardiac arrest, their heart will often start beating in an abnormal way. An AED for Dentist Offices can detect this and send an electric shock to the heart to get it beating normally again.
How can an AED help dentist offices?
Dentist offices can experience cardiac arrests just like any other business. AEDs can help to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm, potentially saving the person’s life. Having an AED in your office is a great way to be prepared for these types of emergencies.
Many dentist offices use epinephrine and other types of local anesthesia, which can increase the risk of a cardiac arrest. AEDs can be used to help revive someone who has gone into cardiac arrest due to these types of anesthetics.
What are the benefits of having an AED for Dentist Offices?
Dentists’ offices are perfect places for AEDs to be used because of the potential for cardiac arrests. Some of the potential benefits are:
- An AED can help to revive someone who has gone into cardiac arrest due to local anesthetics
- AEDs are easy to use and come with clear instructions
- AEDs are portable and lightweight, making them easy to transport
- EDs are easy to store so that they are in a clear easy to find a spot in case a cardiac event occurs
How much does an AED cost and where can I purchase one?
When you consider the lifetime savings and value, an AED is worth every penny. They can cost as much as 2000 dollars but when compared with your investment in life-saving benefits this seems like a small inconvenience!
The price tag may discourage some people from buying one because they think it’s too expensive or doesn’t offer any perks besides saving lives so far (which would make sense). However, even lower-tier units provide valuable help with a quick response time – giving first responders immediate feedback on their performance without having wait minutes
Who should be trained to use the AED in a dentist’s office?
AEDs are easy to use and don’t require any special medical training. Anyone can be trained in AED usage, which is why they’re such an important tool for saving lives. Dentists, hygienists, assistants, and other support staff should all be familiar with AED operations in case of an emergency situation arises.
