  • This could save a life

    We have all walked by the Red Cross sign in airports indicating where a AED heart machine is located. Do you know what is in them and how to use it? I did not. Try this video and see what you think.
    If you pick the wrong choice----the man dies----choose wisely

    May save a life. I Just watched this video and was impressed, so I'm sending it to those on my mailing list with the hope that it'll save lives (maybe mine, yours or someone you love!).

    I took a couple classes back in 2003 to use a similar machine at work. Our employee association had bought a couple of these for the plant, and I think the company thereafter purchased a few more.

    Seeing this reminded me that it would do us all good to get updated on First Aid and the latest in this kind of thing, every couple of years or so.

    Thanks again,

      The interesting thing about an AED is that the machine's goal is to stop the heart beating so that it will start on its on with a natural beating. It will not bring back a person whose heart has stopped-no matter what you see on TV. That is why it is necessary still know CPR.

        That is the one nice thing about being in the service, getting such life-saving training provided free of charge, and often at a regular basis by certified professionals. That is how I gotten my OSHA 10, CPR, and AED Certificates. The only class I never gotten is CPR for infants, usually due to not being available, even less the training equipment needed.
