A Massive Problem

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) kills over 350,000 people every single year in the U.S. alone. It is the leading cause of death for adults over the age of 40, and also leads to the loss of nearly 23,000 youth annually. Despite being a massive public health issue, survival rates have unfortunately remained dismal at around 10% for decades.

Fortunately, there’s a treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) – a life-saving shock from an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). If used quickly, an AED can be highly effective. However, the problem is that AEDs are not readily accessible, and too often don’t get to the people who need them. Avive is on a mission to change that.

A Life-Saving Solution

It’s time to re-think cardiac arrest response through a comprehensive solution, and it starts with the Avive Connect AED™.

Packing first of it’s kind capabilities and the most advanced features in the industry into a smaller, intuitive, more affordable, and connected device, the Avive Connect AED™ sets a new standard for what should be expected of an AED.

The Connect AED is powered by Avive’s REALConnect Platform™ that is designed to get life-saving therapy to a person when and where it’s needed, seamlessly transfer valuable incident data to 911, EMS, and medical professionals at the right time, and automate remote monitoring to ensure your fleet of devices is ready to save a life.
