In the event of a cardiac arrest, quick action is vital to help save a life. By having bold and eye-catching signs to direct responders to the nearest defibrillator, you can save valuable time and increase chances of survival.
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, wall signs are a great way of drawing attention to your life-saving unit, highlighting its location for potential users and making it easily locatable in the event of an emergency.
So you’ve just purchased your AED, but what’s next?
Making sure it can be easily found in an emergency situation is crucial, which is why we advise you store it safely using a wall mount or cabinet. In addition to this, by using effective wall signs, you can easily direct responders to the device, saving valuable seconds which can be spent delivering life-saving care.
Choosing a 3D Wall Sign to raise awareness of your AED means your defibrillator won’t go unnoticed in its place of storage. The sign stands out from the building surface and indicates on both directions that there is an AED in that particular location. This sign is a particularly good choice for locations which attract large crowds as the sign can be seen from more than one angle, unlike a flat surface sign.
When someone suffers a sudden cardiac arrest, they need quick and effective emergency treatment. For every minute that passes by, they lose approximately 10% of their chances of survival.
If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) is performed inside 5 minutes, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%. If the rescue process is performed in less than 60 seconds, survival chances increase to 90%.
It is imperative that a defibrillator is located as fast as possible and having a Wall Sign will undoubtedly inform people that there is a defibrillator present.
