AED’s on Houseboats: A Smart Idea

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) Aboard Recreational Vessels

Consider that most Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) happen while on solid ground, a city, a home, an urban environment. When this happens, we have a rather good chance that Emergency Medical Services (EMS) will arrive in 4-5 minutes, so long as you are within an urban area. Now consider you are on the water when Sudden Cardiac arrest strikes a passenger aboard your recreational vessel.

Now how long before EMS will arrive? The chances are that if you are witness to a Sudden Cardiac Arrest on a lake, river, or even on a short cruise just a few miles off shore, the victim will not survive without the application of immediate first aid procedures which includes use of an AED.

Essential First Aid for Your House Boat

Being an avid boater and regular visitor to many lakes of all sizes, I am very surprised to see the enormous amount of money spent on expensive luxuries and very little on emergency preparedness, first aid being almost dismissed. By and large, full components of first aid preparedness aboard most small and larger recreational vessels I’ve seen consist of a $10 first aid kit. I see more money spent on the flat screen TV, than is ever invested in first aid training, or first aid kits. A Red Cross First Aid, CPR & AED class runs about $110.00, but most of the recreational boating public I’ve spoken to has never taken a class, or if they did, it was so long ago that they do not have the confidence to apply even the simplest of first aid procedures, or life saving techniques. Most professional mariners are required to train for emergencies; however recreational boaters have no such requirements. In fact many have never even taken a boating safety course.

Unlike land based medical emergencies, when you are on the water, 1 mile or 100 miles there is no pulling over to the side of the road, no 911. Time to Emergency Medical Services and immediate first aid are critical factors in determining the outcome of a cardiac medical emergency. Lack of training or simple life saving devices such as an AED (defibrillator) will increase the chance of serviceability of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest victim by 10% per minute. It doesn’t take a mathematician to realize that after 10 minutes of non-response the serviceability drops to almost zero.

A Small Investment that could Save Your Life

For less than the cost of nice flat screen on your recreational boat, you can be equipped to save a life in an instant while you’re out on the water.

Plus an Extra Bonus

Each AED that is purchased comes complete with a video which I produced myself explaining in detail how to use the AED plus life-saving CPR skills which you cannot put a price on
