Only preparedness can avert a disaster. The Airport Corporation maintains the conviction and responsibility toward the safety of every passenger and customer. An appeal to all employees and 8 businesses has resulted in a generous donation of 51 Automated External Defibrillator (AED), enabling service areas within the Taoyuan International Airport to grasp the golden window of 5 minutes to perform rescue operations.
Fully Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
The chain of survival includes early warnings, early CPR, early defibrillation and early advanced medical care, of which the first three interventions have already been classified as Basic Life Support. The majority of cardiac arrest in patients (8 years of age or older) is due to ventricular fibrillation, and therefore defibrillation should ideally be delivered within 5 minutes.
