Medical events come unexpectedly

Having an AED available within a minute can increase recovery from a heart event by a huge amount.

We are happy to welcome to St. A's this new AED in the narthex by the elevator.  If it is needed, the only instruction for use is: PUSH THE ON BUTTON AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS.

There is a small screen that will show you what to do and how to do it.  This version of the AED actually measures heart function and adjusts the needed program as required.  The process always begins with CPR to get the heart moving until the heart is ready to be shocked.

A 5 minute instruction video is here:

Watching it could help save the life of a fellow parishioner.
