Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is both a serious health epidemic and a true serial killer, in the United States and around the world. In the United States alone, over 450,000 die every year from SCA, which is more than car wrecks, handgun violence, house fires, AIDS and breast and prostrate cancer combined. In addition, SCA strikes people of all ages, ethnicities and lifestyles. Unlike other health problems of this magnitude, sudden cardiac arrest is treatable. The only cure for most cases of SCA is immediate shock therapy from an automated external defibrillator (AED), a device that shocks a lifeless heart back to a normal rhythm. While AEDs are relatively simple to use, they are only part of the solution. Without proper management, maintenance and training, a lifesaving AED may not be ready to save a life at the very moment of need.
