Abstract [en]

Sudden cardiac arrest is still today one of the most common cause of death. In Sweden there is around 10 000 victims of sudden cardiac arrest each year. AED’s (Automatic external defibrillators) are becoming more and more common each year, but these AED’s are placed on public spaces and workplaces. But how can the concept a public AED be applied in a home environment. This project explores those possibilities aimed at sparsely populated areas where it can take longer for ambulance to arrive.

During the project I talked to both professional's within emergency healthcare, heart patients and other people otherwise engaged in this particular topic or product to gain valuable information. During my research it became clear that CPR is far more important when it comes to saving lives. By performing CPR before defibrillation you gain a wider time frame and increase the chance of survival.

The result is a more compact and more aesthetically pleasing in both form and colour in order for it to fit the home environment. It also takes into account the importance of CPR by making the AED teach CPR visually for the user. Since the survival rate increases if you perform CPR before defibrillator. The result is also integrated with a service called SMS lifesavers in order to promote awareness and a community for saving lives during sudden cardiac arrest.
