When someone collapses from sudden cardiac arrest, good Samaritans no longer need to run around searching for an AED (automated external defibrillator). They simply take out their smartphone and touch the yellow PulsePoint AED app — provided they already have downloaded it.
It’s shockingly simple to restart a heart…
with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). But AEDs don’t work if we can’t find them. When seconds count – locating the nearest AED can be a matter of life and death.
We are excited to announce that Nicole DeBoom is our Keynote Speaker for Women’s Health Night 2016! Nicole is a Wisconsin Ironman winner in 2004 and a 1988 Olympic Trials qualifier in swimming.
