Anyone Can Save A Life | Heart and Vascular Health | Scoop.it

Anyone Can Save A Life is a first-of-its-kind emergency response program for after-school practices and events.

 

Key Take Away: My community has done a great job acquiring Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) for schools, churches and public places.  HOWEVER, these devices will not be life saving unless people know where the nearest AED is and how to use it.  This is a great program to get schools to create confident and rapid use in the setting of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  By implementing Anyone Can Save A Life, the school community is ‘heart safe’–equipped and prepared to respond to life-threatening emergencies that may take place during after-school athletic and activity practices and events.
