AEDs to be installed at train stations
    2018-01-23  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN Medical Emergency Center has purchased its first batch of 500 Automated External Defibrillators (AED) and will install them in public areas, such as the airport, ferry piers, railway stations and Metro stations.

The installation at Shenzhen Railway Station and Shenzhen East Railway Station will be completed Jan. 20, the National Medical Emergency Day, in time for the Spring Festival transport season.

The city’s health and family planning commission has earmarked funds for the purchase of 5,000 AEDs, while 50,000 people will be trained in first aid and the use of AEDs. In the coming 10 years, 18,000 AEDs will be installed across the city.

AEDs are easy-to-use, portable electronic devices that allow people with no medical backgrounds to perform electric defibrillation. Many developed Western countries have had AEDs installed in public places since 2000, raising the success rate of CPR treatment to 60 percent.

Time is essential in saving victims with sudden cardiac arrest. The average response time is eight to 12 minutes. For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the survival chance is reduced by about 10 percent. (Han Ximin)
