Recognizing the Importance of Defibrillators

March 9th, 2009


The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has announced a plan to install defibrillators in 30 of its stations by the end of the spring, the Toronto Star reports. With over 1,400 commuter illnesses in the past year (900 of which ended in hospital visits), the decision seems to be a wise one. Bill Thomas, head of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, concurs. “For every minute you can initiate CPR or use the public defibrillator you can save a life,” he says.

Thomas is right. Defibrillators can save lives, and at, we offer them in droves. Our Burdick Medic defibrillators are compact, easy to use, and portable, so keep one on hand and you’ll be ready for any crisis. Or, check out the Medtronic Physio Control, which offers hands-free defibrillation and printing of critical event summaries. Of course, you can also try the Powerheart AED G3, which simplifies the process by analyzing the heart and delivering an automatic defibrillation shock if a life-threatening rhythm is detected. is committed to saving lives, and these defibrillators are only a small sample of what we have to offer. So, if you’re in the market for health care products, stick around and have a look.
