SCAA Puts the 'AED' in CPR/AED Week to Make Communities Safer, Better Equipped to Respond to Cardiac Arrest
Date:6/1/2011

WASHINGTON, June 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For 30 years, the national survival rate of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has remained a low six percent. Recognizing the need for expanded awareness of the public health crisis of SCA, the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA) is donating 30 life-saving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to nonprofit community organizations across the country as part of the Association's "donAtED 2011" program.

SCAA's nationwide network of chapters will officially present the devices at various public dedication ceremonies during National CPR/AED Week, June 1-6, 2011.

"SCA continues to strike at alarming numbers in the United States, yet our chapters are making extraordinary strides in expanding awareness of the nation's leading cause of death. This donation effort is a vital element to our spectrum of SCA awareness, which also includes education on preventive heart/healthy lifestyles and bystander assistance as well as implementation of broader access to publicly accessible AEDs, developments in therapies/treatments and post-SCA recovery and rehabilitation resources," said Lisa A. Levine, CAE, president, SCAA.

SCAA's " donAtED 2011" program was made possible through support from Cardiac Science, Defibtech and Zoll. "With their support, we've been able to touch thousands of lives, particularly in rural communities where SCA survival is even more sparse due to geographic barriers," notes Levine. "These companies have placed a patient-centered approach at the forefront of doing business, which demonstrates why they are industry leaders in the development of lifesaving emergency response and resuscitation technology."

A sampling of the 30 local organizations receiving AEDs includes:

  • Richland Baptist Church (Fredericksburg, Virginia)
  • The Children's Museum of the Upstate (Greenville, South Carolina)
  • James L. Stanfield VFW Post 10386 (Kingma
