Plymate Introduces New Safety Service: ZOLL AED Plus®
Here at Plymate, we are dedicated to helping our customers build and maintain safe work environments. As a family-owned uniform rental and facility service provider since 1930, we are always looking for new ways to improve our company for better customer experiences.
Recently, we invested in a new service to allow businesses to stay safe and prepared: the AED Plus® from ZOLL. Do you know if your business is fully prepared to handle a cardiac emergency?
What is an AED?
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), a condition where the heart suddenly stops beating. SCA claims over 350,000 lives in the U.S. each year.
In the event of SCA, an AED can analyze the heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to help restore a normal rhythm. Having an AED on-site can make the difference between life and death – survival rates decrease by 10% for every minute defibrillation is delayed.
Why Your Business Needs an AED
OSHA recommends that all workplaces have AEDs available in case of emergencies. An on-site AED can provide a lifesaving response in those critical moments before professional help arrives.
According to the American Heart Association, SCA survival rates increase from 8% to over 50% when AEDs are used before EMS arrives. Providing this vital protection for employees demonstrates a commitment to their well-being.
ZOLL’s AED Plus®
ZOLL’s AED Plus® stands out as the only AED with Real CPR Help® – real-time feedback to help rescuers provide high-quality CPR even if they do not have medical training. Since CPR is crucial for SCA victims, this can dramatically improve survival outcomes.
Key benefits of the AED Plus® include:
- Real CPR Help guidance for rescuers with prompts like “Push Harder” or “Good Compressions”
- Highest level resistance to dust and moisture with an IP55 rating
- Long-lasting batteries and pads (up to 5 years) for lower maintenance costs
- One-piece pad design to prevent damage from mishandling
By partnering with us, your business will receive full-service AED placement and regular maintenance. Let us handle the work of installing your AED Plus® unit and managing supplies – all for a nominal weekly charge and no upfront costs.
