A Life-Saving Technology at Geneva Station
Every two minutes, someone in this country goes into sudden cardiac arrest. It can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone, and unless normal heart rhythm is restored within a very brief period, death is practically inevitable.
But now there is hope in the form of a remarkable medical device called automated external defibrillator (AED). This device is used to administer an electric shock through the chest wall to the heart. Built-in computers assess the patient’s heart rhythm, judge whether defibrillation is needed and then administer the shock. These devices are simple to operate and they can be used by non-medical personnel with proper AED training.
EH&S would like to invite you to attend the Heart Saver Program. This program was designed to comply with the American Heart Association. The training will take place on the dates and times listed below, and will take ~ 2.5 hours to complete.
I have listed below training session dates and times. To sing-up for a session, please contact Soon Kong at firstname.lastname@example.org w/ preferred date and time.
