Knowing how to operate an AED or automated external defibrillator is very important. Early use of AED is one of the five time-sensitive actions in what the American Heart Association calls “chain of survival.” An AED can restore a normal heart rhythm in victims of sudden cardiac arrest and now new, portable AEDs enable more people to respond to a medical emergency that requires defibrillation. When a person suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, their chance of survival decreases by 7% to 10% for each minute that passes without defibrillation. AEDs save lives, and with certified training from AIDA NM, you can too.
Whether you plan on entering the medical field or you have family you want to be prepared for, first aid training is another advantageous piece of knowledge to have. The purpose of first aid training is to prevent further injury. Knowledge of first aid promotes a sense of safety and well-being. Constant awareness and a desire to be accident free keeps everyone around you safe and secure.
