Automated defibrillators may save fewer lives

Posted on December 1st, 2011 No Comments

Ten years ago, based on a recommendation by the American Heart Association, hospitals across the country purchased millions of dollars worth of automated defibrillators made to help save lives in the event of a patient going into cardiac arrest.

New research, however, has shown that this equipment may have been a mistake, and that the older, low-tech defibrillators in fact save more lives.  Committee members of the American Heart Association endorsed the new products because they were designed so lesser-skilled hospital employees could operate them.

Chair of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, Dr. Steven Nissen, stated, “Why would we want to dumb things down to a level of having a machine do the thinking for us?”
