Absolute Health announces that has just increased the safety of its guests at the Medical SPA, becoming one of the sadly few Heart Safe Clinics in Rome. Absolute Health has installed a Semi AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR ( AED ), produced by Philips Healthcare, a life-saver health device, that, in case of heart and respiratory arrest, takes charge giving an electric shock to the heart to re-establish its normal pace in case of cardiac arrhythmia such as tachycardia, fibrillation, flutter.
Semi Automated External Defibrillator is an advanced technology device and a very simple life-saver instrument, even for non-medical rescuers. Once the adesive electrode pads are connected to the person in cardiac arrest, the AED autonomously check the heart conditions and its eventual need for a defibrillation. At the same time the Semi Automatic External Defibrillator gives vocal instructions to the first responders on how to act: when to activate the electric shock, when the bystanders should not touch the patient, when to resume the normal cardiopulmonary resuscitation ( CPR ) maneuvers: mouth to mouth and heart massage. The Semi Automated External Defibrillator ( AED ), is the newest Life-Saver tool at Absolute Health Medical SPA, in addition to oxygen tanks, first aid kit and drugs. The Absolute Health staff is certified and periodically retrained to Basic Life Support and Defibrillation ( BLS/D ). Knowing how to immediately respond to an health emergency and being fully equipped to do it can save a life: SAFETY FIRST – LIFE FIRST.
