Tandem AED/EMS

The problem high rise aed deployment

The Problem – High Rise AED Deployment

  • Dot >Legislated public

  • Line>Commercial zones

  • Area>AED Rentals?

  • Mandate>Fire Code

    Most Urgent –> HIGH RISES

  • Towerresidents and workers have higher, needlessrisk

  • Difficult for EMS vehicles to access due to call volume, city traffic, security etc.

  • Integrated AED programs and training required, not just hardware

  • The largestbenefit for the greatestnumber, against the leading killer whendeployed

  • Building ownersstrugglingwith AED policies,implementations , liability and compliance

Why high rise aeds are needed

Why High Rise AEDs are Needed

  • Vehicle-based rescue services typically arrive too late for defibrillation

  • Huge demographic is needlessly exposed to death via sudden cardiac arrest

  • The four minute barrier for successful resuscitation must be respected as the main factor

  • Advocacy, partnerships and IFC leadership could bring the AED revolution to a highly cost-efficient and widely deployed status

Elevator lobbies best for pads

Elevator Lobbies best for PADs

Compelling Advantages

Brings the AED in-house, which is the key factor in deployment

Lobbies aresecure and public, with a dense population within two minutes of a single AED

Super Cost-efficiency One AED can protect an entire high rise complex

Securitypersonnel can screen events, initiate rescues, interface with EMS

Elevators can speed access and delivery of the AED to hundreds of possible residents

Tandem aed ems

Tandem AED/EMS*

*Prompt AED shock, EMS consolidates

  • Defibrillation <4 minutes and EMS arrival at 8+ min is achievable and highly effective

  • Separate AED and EMS processes execute in tandem, complementing each other

  • A broad expansion of heart safety to high rises that will conserve EMS resources, reduce calls & costs

Tandem deployment


1) Specify Lobby Placement

The public will come to associate elevator lobbies with AEDs – be sure to exploit their many advantages

2) Purchase within a Service Contract, not as a bare AED

Guarantee its care with a continuing service agreement

Background mandated aeds


  • Fire Code Campaign seeks to mandate elevator lobby PADs in the IFC by 2013

  • High rise residents and workers finally protected by in-house devices

  • Bypasses ad hoc legislation process for informed engineers’ hearings

  • Would associate AEDs with elevators in the public mind

Proposed fire code addition

Proposed Fire Code Addition

  • “408.12.1  Public Access Defibrillation. Elevator main lobbies shall include an automated external defibrillator (AED) in an approved location.”

  • Ruling would be delivered 2013

  • Adequate time available to rally support from stakeholders

  • A fundamental regulation adoptable via fire codes by municipalities worldwide

The future the ng9 1 1 cloud

The Future The NG9-1-1 Cloud

  • Next Generation 9-1-1 Cloud will manage text, voice, audio and video data streams

  • AED sectors in the Cloud may include the AED Registry, EMS operations, local data and records

  • Opportunity to integrate local EHR and heart patient data into a Cloud DB

  • Options during leases to upgrade or add panel equipment and NG9-1- 1 Cloud communications S/W
