'Ultimately, with broad deployment of AEDs among trained responders, as many as 50,000 deaths due to sudden cardiac arrest could be prevented each year.'

If you are curious about the way that change takes place in society you may want to take a look at this page on Automated External Defibrillators on the website of the The National Conference of State Legislatures ('The Forum for America's Ideas'). The table of state laws is interesting because it's huge. Thinking about all the work that must go into a single bill, that's a staggering amount of legislation following on from the simple idea of putting AED's in public places.
