* An effective public access defibrillation (PAD) program involves more than the purchase of AEDs.
Couple these points with CPR curriculums that includes AED training, development of Public Access Defibrillation (American Heart Association, 2001; retrievable at www.americanheart/org/downloadable/ heartsmart/10957141855334Apadcase.pdf) and the glee with which people, including those who have health challenges, march into experiences.
A second study, the Public Access Defibrillation trial, found that training volunteers to use AEDs placed in shopping centers and recreational facilities doubled the number of cardiac arrest victims who survived and were able to leave the hospital.
The Automatic Defibrillation in Adam's Memory Act also authorizes $25 million for states to increase awareness and establish public access defibrillation programs in schools.
He notes that the ultimate goal for the new technology is "public access defibrillation," which means that people will have access to defibrillators in much used areas, such as office buildings, stadiums, transit terminals and airplanes, where survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest have been less than 1 percent.
These include the rising incidences of cardiovascular diseases and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), increasing awareness of SCA and the life-saving potential of AEDs, and an implementation of public access defibrillation programs in various countries.
