International Paramedic College
The Key To Survival in Sudden Cardiac Arrest Is The “Time to First Shock.”
Community and the success rate of CPR and early Defibrillation is important to us so IPC donates a free defibrillator to an organisation of a survivors choice when our AED is used in a genuine cardiac event, plus free pads and battery replacement after a genuine cardiac arrest event where one of our lifesaving AED,s is used.
“The city of Seattle in the USA has an effective public education and AED program. If we could do the same here and emulate their success we could save around 34 Australians a day or 12000 a year.”
“The survival rate for cardiac arrest in King County Seattle has risen from 27% in 2002 and hit an all-time high of 62 percent in 2013” If we could do as well as them look how many more people we could save everyday
% Australian survival rate
% of casualties die before reaching hospital
% survival rate target (Seattle USA)
Australians could survive each day with a Seattle system
Preparation is the key to surviving Sudden Cardiac Arrest
“Key Features” in corporate AED programs
AED Alert Systems
The IP55 rated Mindray AED for example has an an optional Wi Fi alert system which provides the capability to monitor a whole fleet of AED’s remotely .This Mindray AED Alert system is being adopted into many Hospitals and large corporations, as it can monitor all patient monitoring and Defib devices (even other brands). It is the easiest to use and most adaptive patient/AED monitoring program on the market today and does not require ongoing monthly subscriptions.
Easy Accessable Highly Visable Locations
Where should we put an AED?
AED locations must be highly visible to the public or employees and should be located ideally to have a 3 minute response time.
AED Locations should take account of
- response time
- rate of incidence
- Volume of employees/customers/visitors
- The nature of the risk where you are
Well Trained Staff
Many businesses and schools encourage or run on-site CPR AED training their employees to receive CPR/AED training so they are prepared to administer appropriate action in the event of a workplace emergency. According to a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, individuals working long hours are 67% more likely to suffer from a heart attack during their lifetime. When you purchase an AED from IPC we will provide you with a training package to fit your needs.
Customised AED training with every AED you buy from IPC
As a registered training organisation We can provide CPR training classes full training and support and supplies for your AED.

AED Alert Program

Ease of Use and Training
Is the defib simple enough to be used by anybody following the instructions and voice prompts and with some basic training.
Do we need extra pads or equipment to treat children. Some AED’s can use the same pads on Adults and Children saving you stocking costs.
Time Critical Support
The absence of early defibrillation combined with CPR means that the chances of survival decrease 10% every minute that passes.
