Can You Find The Defibrillator At Work? Half Of People Say No

About 10,000 cardiac arrests happen in workplaces each year, according to the American Heart Association. Using an automatic external defibrillator can help increase the chance of survival.

People who work in the hospitality and service industries were even less likely to know where to find an AED, according to a new survey. The devices can restart someone’s heart after cardiac arrest.
