Victims who received an AED shock from a bystander (57.1 percent) using a publicly-available device instead of having to wait for emergency responders (32.7 percent) had near normal function and better outcomes. Without a bystander using AED shock therapy, 70 percent of cardiac arrest patients either died or survived with impaired brain function.
Where is Your AED?
AEDs that are managed using PulsePoint AED are accessible to emergency dispatchers and disclosed to emergency responders, including nearby citizens trained in CPR and off-duty professionals such as firefighters, paramedics, and nurses. Instead of asking the caller if there is an AED available, dispatch center staff can inform callers of nearby lifesaving devices.
Certain occupancies are required to have an AED in the Town of Flower Mound. These occupancies include schools, nursing facilities, dental offices and certain assembly occupancies. See our AED Requirements guide for more information.
