Austin and Lubbock Groups Will Work to Prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Through Public Education and Advocacy

WASHINGTON, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA) announced today that it has launched Austin and Lubbock chapters as it builds a network of local organizations to help carry out its mission of preventing sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

The Austin SCAA chapter is led by Connie Snell of Austin who is an SCA survivor and has been active in the Austin community, including participating annually at the city of Austin's "Keep the Beat Alive" event which recognizes citizens and emergency workers who have been involved in saving victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Connie was also a strong public advocate for the state legislation that was enacted to require automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in Texas schools. The chapter is already scheduled to participate in several activities at the upcoming national conference on preventive medicine that will be held in Austin in February.

The Lubbock SCAA chapter is led by Jeriami St. Clair of Lubbock, who is a paramedic and certified CPR trainer. St. Clair has been involved in the initiative to place more than 200 automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in Lubbock area schools, churches and businesses and has been involved in CPR training and SCA awareness programs since 1998.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading killer in the U.S., striking more than 350,000 annually, with a survival rate of only about five percent. The death rate for SCA exceeds the combined death rate of breast cancer, lung cancer, stroke and HIV/AIDS. SCA is triggered by an electrical problem with the heart that causes the heart to stop beating, and is often confused with a heart attack. SCA victims can often be revived with CPR and quick access to defibrillation to shock the heart back into rhythm. While there are more AEDs in public facilities and more patients
