CPR Supplies, Kits, and Accessories
Couple Your CPR training with the necessary CPR Supplies. Confidence. Readiness.
During Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) only 15-30% of bystanders respond to the victim.(De Maio, et.al., 2001 & Lateef & Anantharaman, 2001) Of these individuals, 60-80% have had some form of CPR training.(Swor, Khan, Domeier, Honeycutt, Chu, & Compton, 2006) One of the leading reasons bystanders and lay rescuers do not respond is the perceived risk of disease transmission associated with the CPR process. For that reason, Annuvia believes it is vital to provide rescuers with the tools necessary to break through all barriers that may lead to a lack of response. Lay rescuers need to feel confident and ready and Annuvia provides the tools to give them this confidence.
These statistics are the direct result of three primary causes: poor training, lack of education, and fear of the unknown. While we believe the majority of this inaction can be attributed to poor and/or improper training (thus Annuvia has developed several customized training courses unique to the client, industry, and environment, thereby shattering barriers to response and greatly increasing action) we understand certain fears are directly related to responder-victim contact. This said, it is important to allow responders to utilize their learned skills and feel comfortable using them. After all, being trained means nothing if you don’t respond!
