Fact: Sudden Cardiac Arrest kills more than 300,000 in the US each year.
Problem: More than 25% could be saved if AEDs were available.
Solution: Altrix Medical’s AED Technology can save lives.
The Altrix Medical SmartAED
Altrix Medical is creating a miniature Automated External Defibrillator (AED). This innovative medical device goes anywhere a person goes and allows for the immediate on-site diagnosis and treatment of someone suffering from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
The technology fits in a purse, pocket, or bag. It offers the same lifesaving energy as larger AEDs and is designed to be used by anyone anywhere.
SCAs are caused when the heart’s natural electrical system that is responsible for pumping blood (i.e., beating the heart) malfunctions. Someone experiencing an SCA needs to be treated with an AED immediately. These devices shock the heart with electricity to restore its normal rhythm. If an AED is available and used quickly and properly, it can save a person’s life.
*This device is under development and is not approved by the FDA for sale in the U.S.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)
WHAT IS SCA?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. It can cause death if it is not treated in minutes. In the United States alone, over 325,000 people will experience an SCA this year; 9 out of 10 of them will die without immediate intervention.
STATISTICS ON SCA
The number of people killed by SCAs each year is equivalent to the number of people who will die from: Alzheimers disease, assault with firearms, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, HIV, house fires, motor vehicle accidents, prostate cancer and suicides – combined.
