Be Prepared for an emergency when every second counts

The problem with heart disease is that the first symptom is often fatal.

– Michael Phelps


An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It’s a sophisticated yet easy-to-use medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. At $600 this DIY version is a mere fraction of the cost of the commercial version.

EpiPencil Autoinjector

Piece together a $30 EpiPen replacement – this consists of an auto-injector, a syringe, a 22-gauge hypodermic needle, and the epinephrine, which you will need to get from a prescription.

In a pinch, you can use multiple doses from an over-the-counter epinephrine inhaler (more details on this to come)


During cardiac arrest, hypoxia is a major risk. Administering off-the-shelf sports oxygen as part of your emergency kit can reduce the chances of brain damage after the patient is revived.
