One of ADS’ medical partner suppliers, Cardiac Science, was featured on the TODAY Show with medical TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz. The topic of discussion between Matt Lauer and Dr. Oz was on how to administer CPR and use a defibrillator (AED).
The life you save is someone you know and love because 4 out of 5 of those people who drop dead, drop dead in front of their families because we hang with our families.
So families who know how to do this, save themselves…”
– Dr. Mehmet Oz
“And for every minute you do not do one of these procedures, the survival rate decreases by between 7 and 10 percent, so you have to do this quickly,” explains Matt Lauer.
In the following video, get a refresher on how to administer the Texas Two Step—a hands-only CPR that doesn’t involve mouth to mouth, a method that typically increases chances of survival.
“With chest compressions and an AED we can double, even triple, the number of people we save,” explains Dr. Oz.
Watch a public defibrillator in action as it's administered on a test dummy. The Cardiac Science Powerheart® G5 AED is bilingual and walks the user through the entire process, including much needed direction to stay calm and call 9-1-1.
