Help us today to make all spaces #heartsafe.
WHAT DO WE DO?
A charity devoted to placing AED’s in the community sports fields & schools. Raising awareness of life-saving CPR and operation of AED in case of a sudden cardiac arrest, in memory of Andrew Stoddart.
WHAT IS AN AED?
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try and restore a normal rhythm.
WHAT IS SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. When this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain & other vital organs.
SCA usually causes death if not treated within minutes. The window of opportunity for using an AED is small defibrillation is more successful if performed within 5 minutes of the SCA. The chances of survival decrease 7-10% with every minute that passes after the arrest.
ALL TVDSB SCHOOLS ARE NOW #HEARTSAFE.
Andrew’s Legacy has donated 63 UNITS, including TIM HORTONS in Thamesford!!!
Our Goal: To make all public spaces ‘heart safe’ by having an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) available on site, wherever a fire extinguisher currently exists. Make a donation to save lives.
