AED (automated external defibrillator) Training

MARK YOUR CALENDARS.

Very special AED (automated external defibrillator) TRAINING has been co-ordinated for our Plattsburgh Group by Town of Plattsburgh Recreation & Youth Director Melanie Defayette. Please let’s pass this good word to those not on Facebook and in memory of Scott Hecoux let’s make every effort to attend.

Mary Breyette from Cornell Cooperative Extension will train:

M O N D A Y J A N U A R Y 8, 2 0 1 8

10 am – at the Plattsburgh City Gym and/or
4 pm – at the Senior Center

Both sessions will be for approx 30 minutes.

FYI:
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arthythmias of ventricular fibrillation and pulse-less ventricular tachycardia in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be simple to use for the layperson, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, certified first responder, and basic life support (BLS) level cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes.

Defibrillators are currently available at both the Senior Center and City Gyms.
