We are excited to report that the Atrus AED Link system in place here in Contra Costa County worked perfectly yesterday for a reported cardiac arrest. The arrest location was within 1,200 feet of our office.   All identified AED Responders were notified and 3 reported that they would respond.  I was one of the 6 AED Responders identified and one of the 3 who responded.

We grabbed our AED and headed to the reported location.  Luckily, when we arrived the patient was not actually in sudden cardiac arrest.  He was initially unconscious, non-responsive with ineffective breathing (from the dispatch report).  We were ready!!

I was surprised that I did not get a PulsePoint alert as well, but I have discovered the distance was greater than the 1,000 feet that PulsePoint uses.  That extra 200 feet made a difference on this call.  I am glad that we went with 1,200 feet.

We are very happy to have AED Link to help us get our AEDs out of the cabinet and on to the patient.

Thank you,

I thought you would be interested in knowing that the AED Link was used in a sudden cardiac arrest about 20 minutes ago. A SCA occurred in a multi tenant high rise office building on a floor that did not have an AED. AED Link identified a business that had an AED in the building and was activated by our communication centre. I am not certain if the AED was used or not, as the Paramedics arrived on scene in four minutes. I am also unsure of the outcome of the patient; I think the unit is still on scene as we speak.

I felt you would appreciate knowing that your system worked as it was designed to do. Great work!

Subject: AED Link used July 2nd, 2008 in Regina

Hi Elliot

I would like to follow up with a summary of events that took place that day in which AED Link was used to activate an AED at one of our PAD sites in the city.

Our regional communications centre received a 9-1-1 call on July 2, 2008 at 14:25:56hrs from an employee of an anchor store of a shopping mall that witnessed a lady collapse in the parking lot of the mall. Approximately one minute into the 9-1-1 call, the information the caller was giving the call taker lead them to believe the patient was in cardiac arrest and began giving the caller pre-arrival instructions on how to do CPR. When asked if an AED was available, the caller said no. However, the 9-1-1 dispatcher immediately identified the shopping mall had an AED and called the contact number and instructed the mall employee to respond to the the area of the mall where the patient was located at 14:27:55hrs using the AED Link application.

When EMS paramedics arrived it was determined that the patient simply had a syncope episode, was not in cardiac arrest and subsequently did not require the AED. However, this is a classic example of how AED Link was able to locate and activate the closest AED in an emergency that may have otherwise sat idle when needed most.
