James Gandolfini Death Could Have Been Prevented If Hotel Had AED Says UCLA Cardiologist
Date:7/7/2013

ALLENTOWN, Pa., July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Med Supply advises all travelers to book a hotel equipped with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) since James Gandolfini's recent death could have been prevented if his hotel had an AED according to a UCLA cardiologist.  

"James Gandolfini absolutely may have survived if hotel personnel had used an AED when they found him," said Dr. Matthew Budoff, an associate professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine UCLA and a renowned cardiologist, during an interview with the National Enquirer.

"For each minute that passes following a heart attack, the survival rates drop by 10 percent.  So if five minutes pass without assistance by the AED, his survival rate is 50 percent.  If 10 minutes go by, the risk of dying is 100 percent," added Dr. Budoff in the National Enquirer.  "There is no question that had they used an AED when they first found James Gandolfini, his chances of survival would have been greatly improved."  

An AED is a small laptop-sized device that can automatically restart a heart after sudden cardiac arrest.  A New England Journal of Medicine study found that public access to AEDs doubled the chances of survival in cardiac-arrest cases.     

"More lives can be saved if additional hotels put their guests first and invest in AEDs," said Allyn Cutts, co-founder of American Med Supply, a retailer of AEDs including Heartsine PAD AED,
