One June 7th, something unbelievable happened at a High School Basketball game at Monmouth College. A student, Nick Atterberry’s heart stopped. Luckily, the trainer from Monmouth College, Bob Foster, was present and ultimately saved the students life.
The AHA’s 2010 Guidelines note that if bystanders do nothing for a collapsed victim, the chance of survival drops about 10% every minute. However, if CPR is immediately given, the chance of survival only drops 3-4% per minute.
What does this story have to do with us? Bob used an AED purchased from Safety Suppy Illinois. This is exactly why we do what we do. We help other people stay safe and save lives. Nothing is more important to us, and we hope that this story reminds you to make sure that you have an AED nearby in case of an emergency. You never know when you will need it.
