NEW DELHI: From today, two most busiest Metro stations in the capital will have Automated External Defibrillator (AED) that would help save life of a person who suffers sudden cardiac arrest. The medical instruments were today installed at Central Secretariat and Kashmere Gate Metro stations. "These reliable, accessible and easy to use AEDs will be of great use, particularly for a crowded station in a medical emergency if a commuter suffers a sudden cardiac arrest. As the heart stops functioning in such a case and without cardiopulmonary resuscitation from someone, brain damage or death can occur in just four to six minutes," a DMRC spokesman said. The most effective emergency treatment for sudden cardiac arrest is to resuscitate a victim's heart until proper medical help arrives. These AEDs send an electric shock to the heart and allow it to return to a normal...
rhythm. AEDs can be used even by non-medical personnel. The installation of these AEDs will be followed by certified training for a group of core staff members of DMRC. This is the first time that an AED is being installed in Metro premises to protect its commuters against death from sudden cardiac arrest. These Powerheart AEDs were presented to DMRC by Opto Circuits (India) Limited. With the installation of these Powerheart AEDs, Delhi Metro has now joined the league of several high traffic, mass-transit environments like those available in developed countries.
