A joule is a unit of energy used to measure the shock produced by an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Once an AED detects a cardiac arrhythmia it will send a life-saving shock, between 150-360 joules, through the chest of a sudden cardiac arrest patient. This shock stops the heart, allowing it “reset” and begin to beat normally.

CPR & First Aid Training
CPR is the manual application of chest compressions and ventilations to patients in cardiac arrest, done in an effort to maintain viability until advanced help arrives. This procedure is an essential component of basic life support (BLS), basic cardiac life support (BCLS), and advanced cardiac life support (ACLS).
The concept of CPR was developed in 1960 by the American Heart Association even though the process has been in development since as early as 1740, when mouth-to-mouth was first recommended for drowning victims. Since this time, CPR has gone through drastic changes to become the life saving measure it is today. Encompassing all areas of resuscitation from adults to children and infants.
Early recognition and prompt action is the driving force that improves the chance of survival and recovery for victims of cardiac arrest and other emergencies.
