AED.com Now Offers Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Sports Packages
Date:5/13/2013

Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Because of the cardiac risks involved with sporting events, the American Heart Association has long recommended AED placement at these events. Sporting organizations like the NCAA require that teams have an AED readily available at all games and practices. Recently, controversy has surrounded the death of college footballer Wayne Jones III when his parents filed a lawsuit establishing that when he suffered cardiac arrest he did not receive immediate care and there was not an AED readily available at the practice.

To help teams be prepared for incidents like this one, AED.com has designed AED Sports Packages that contain all the necessary accessories a sports team would need whether at home or on the road. “With many different options available, knowing which AED and accessories to purchase is not always an easy decision,” said Justin Darby, Director of Marketing for AED.com. “Our customers appreciate the other customized AED packages we have created and with the Sports Package we hope to make it easier for any sports team or facility to provide a safe place for athletes to perform.”

According to Jones’ autopsy, he died due to a fatal arrhythmia from a scar tissue in his heart. Many athletes that suffer cardiac arrest do so because of an underlying heart condition that had not been previously detected. According to the AHA, the chances of surviving cardiac arrest dramatically improve if the victim is given CPR and treatment with an AED in the first few minutes after collapse. “There are many cases of athletes that have been saved from cardiac arrest because an AED was rapidly deployed,” said Darby. “We believe as more sports teams and facilities implement AED programs, we will see less tragedies like Jones’.”
