Automated External Defibrillator

The Japan Times '07.4.17より

 本日のジャパンタイムズに日本でのAEDの普及について掲載されていたのでご紹介します。

 Placement is happening faster in Japan than anywhere else in the world, according to Dr. Hideo Mitamura, a cardiologist who led a lengthy battle to get the rules on AEDs changed. Until July 2004, only medical and emergency personnel were allowed to operate an AED in Japan, but now lay people can use them as well.

"It's amazing how fast AEDs have been disseminated since the rules changed," Mitamura told me in an interview at Saiseikai Central Hospital in Tokyo, where he serves as deputy director. "In 2006, 45,000 AEDS were sold and placed around Japan, making this the second largest market after the United States."

Unfortunately, a number of tragedies occurred before Japan brought its laws into line with international recommendations by allowing public access to AEDs.

The most publicized was the death of Prince Takamado, a member of the Imperial family who collapsed in September 2002 while playing squash. Although an ambulance arrived within eight minutes, paramedics were too late to resuscitate the prince. He almost certainly would have survived had an AED been on site, Mitamura asserts.

Another tragic case was 14-year-old Shunpei Inage, who collapsed and died after running at school in June 2004, just one month before AED use by lay people was approved. His parents set up a foundation that has successfully pushed for AEDs in every high school in Hokkaido.

 2006年は45000台のAEDが売れ、アメリカに次ぐ市場になっているのでしょうか?
台数もさることながら、使える人も同じように増えていって欲しいと思います。
