Learn CPR with An AED
Did you know you can triple a victim’s chance of survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) when you perform CPR and use an AED?
Each year, we dedicate the first week of June to raising awareness about the importance of knowing what to do if someone around you goes into cardiac arrest. The best way to remember these life-saving steps is to:
Call 911 for emergency assistance
Push as hard and fast as you can on the victim’s chest until someone comes to help
Shock the victim using the nearest AED by turning it on and following the voice prompts
Watch Dr. Mike Ackerman, Richard Lamphier, RN from Project S.A.V.E., and Adrian Olmos, Director of Patient Advocacy at LifeSure Home AED Solutions, answer questions about AEDs and how to perform CPR.
