The adoption of AED (Automated External Defibrillators) in many markets has really progressed over the last decade or so. The surge in placing the affordable, safe & easy-to-use public defibrillators is perhaps driven by raising awareness about cardiac arrest death (different from heart attack) and a significant drop in price of AEDs (about $1500.) The majority of schools, swimming pools, university gyms, & airports have AEDs & CPR training and all Federal buildings are mandated to have AEDs.
Surprisingly slow to adopt AEDs have been the big-box retailers, hotels, and restaurants. When you estimate how many customers eat a given restaurant each day or shop at a store from opening to closing it is puzzling why life-safety isn’t more strongly considered. In wonderful news Lowe’s (North Carolina-based) the major retail home improvement store has placed AEDs in each of their stores. This should be well-received by employees, customers, and partners of Lowe’s because chances of surviving an SCA death is remarkably better.
