Cardiac Arrhythmia – a sudden irregular heartbeat – can kill! When a person’s heart suddenly starts beating too fast or with a chaotic rhythm, this can lead to death. The heart’s beat must be reset.
In such an emergency, swift action is essential. An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) –used within the first 3 to 5 minutes after a person collapses can save the person’s life by resetting the heartbeat to a normal rhythm. This means an AED must be visible and accessible.
The Belize Red Cross San - Pedro Branch asks your assistance in developing a list of the Automatic External Defibrillators located on the island. If you, your business or work place has an AED, please let the Red Cross know its location. It could save someone’s life!
