Defibrillator: Portable Unit Saves Lives

It weighs only 3.3 pounds, but the Phillips HeadStart OnSite Defibrillator uses clear, calm voice instructions to save precious lives. The Town of Atkinson graciously accepted the device, which is located in the lobby at Town Hall, through the courtesy of dedicated residents Hedi and David Shikes and the Atkinson Fire Association members at a joint cost. Attending dedication ceremonies are, from left, Selectmen William Friel, former Fire Association President Brennan Scott, Hedi and David Shikes, Fred Beckwith, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Selectman Chairman Fred Childs, Jr., and Selectman Todd Barbera.

Sudden cardiac arrest leads the causes of death in adults, and treatment delays of 4 to 5 minutes decrease survival chances by almost forty-percent. Most heart attacks occur at work or home, and prompt use of automatic external defibrillators and CPR techniques saves many lives. The Philips HeartStart OnSite AED examines cardiac-event victims and guides inexperienced bystanders in cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques, administering shocks at the right time to get hearts pumping again. Preparation and participation could save a life, and the life might be your own. (CTN photo by Larry Kennedy)
