With the donation of two automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), the staffs at Meals on Wheels and Special Population Recreation are better equipped to respond to sudden cardiac arrest, one of the leading causes of death in the United States.
During sudden cardiac arrest, the electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic or both, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest takes as many as 460,000 lives each year.
AnMed Health LifeFlight is now equipped with a LUCAS Chest Compression System, allowing flight nurses and paramedics to respond even more efficiently to sudden cardiac arrest.
