FACTORS THAT BRING ERIKSEN TO LIFE
Denmark captain Simon Kjaer was the first responder to Eriksen and prevented the player from choking on his tongue. Afterwards, paramedics entered the field and it was seen that the Danish football player was given CPR. During the intervention, the importance of the AED device came to the fore.
WHAT IS OED DEVICE?
The device stands for Automatic External Defibrillator. It automatically recognizes ventricular fibrillation, which is a vital rhythm disorder, and performs the task of bringing the heart back to life by giving an electroshock. It is known that there are OED devices in stadiums and airports.
HOW TO USE THE AUTOMATIC EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR?
The OED / AED automatic defibrillator device is affixed to the patient’s bare chest of disposable pads. Then, the device is expected to analyze the patient’s heart rhythm (ECG) and if the device recommends defibrillation (shock), if the device is semi-automatic, by pressing the “defibrillation” button; If it is fully automatic, it is realized by the device itself.
The AED automatic external defibrillator device is designed to be used by anyone who has no medical training but only first aid training knowledge. In the perfect world, everyone should receive training in the use of AEDs (automatic defibrillators) and CPR (to cardiopulmonary resuscitation).
The automatic defibrillator guides and assists the user with visual and voice commands. The average time for an ambulance to arrive at the scene is 10 to 12 minutes, and every minute is very important during this time. A person with sudden cardiac arrest has a very low chance of surviving 10 minutes without an AED and CPR.
WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DEFIBRILLATION?
Defibrillation is part of basic life support; It is a life-saving procedure to end the irregular vibrations in the myocardium by giving electric current to the heart with a defibrillator and to ensure that the heart functions normally. In VF or pulseless VT, defibrillation applied within 20-30 seconds converts nearly 100% to sinus rhythm. Each minute of delay reduces the Chance of success by 10%. In 10 minutes delay, the chance of survival is close to 0%. After the development of cardiac arrest with VF or pulseless VT, the death rate increases by 7-10% for each minute until defibrillation. If defibrillation is started later, the patient’s chance of surviving also decreases; If cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillation are started after the first 10 minutes, only one out of every 250 patients can be saved.
MUST BE EVERYWHERE
Associate Professor Muhammed Keskin shared the medical device that brought Christian Eriksen back to life on his social media account: “The device that brought Eriksen back to life: Automatic External Defibrillator (OED) It automatically recognizes ventricular fibrillation, which is a vital rhythm disorder, and returns the heart to life by giving electroshock. but it should be wherever people are in mass.” used his statements.
