|Founded in 1999 as a medical equipment supplier to the healthcare industry, Totally Medical decided to help further the cause of providing access to early defibrillation for victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Following 18 months of performing careful, exhaustive research to determine which AED is the best for a bystander to use when SCA strikes; ZOLL Medical’s AED Plus was found to be the superior unit. This was so important to the company that in 2004 it created a separate public access division (PAD) dedicated solely to promoting the public use of defibrillation and became a national distributor for ZOLL Medical Company.
In addition to helping companies and individuals acquire the AED Plus, Totally Medical provides a comprehensive Workplace Defibrillation Program, including service, training and compliance with state and federal laws. All staff has been trained in CPR/AED and many representatives are certified trainers. Totally Medical has also teamed up with the American Heart Association, the National Safety council, the American Red Cross and the National Center for Early Defibrillation to ensure that all client training needs can be met.
Totally Medical’s corporate philosophy is simple. Make AEDs readily accessible so when SCA strikes, the opportunity is there for any bystander to “act fast and save a life.” Their goal is to make AEDs as common in public areas as fire extinguishers. Totally Medical’s client base includes churches, schools, malls, athletic facilities, commercial buildings and construction sites.
The application of early defibrillation can save thousands of lives that would otherwise be lost waiting for an ambulance to arrive. For more information on how an AED can work for you, contact Totally Medical at 888-AED-PLUS (233.7587) or visit their website at www.totallymedical.com.
