Automated External Defibrillators as Gifts

This morning I felt the chill in the air which told me that summer is making way for Fall, then Winter, and then the Holidays! I should start working on a Christmas gift list, and just don’t have enough hours in the day (all that went through my head in about two seconds flat) …ARGHHH!!

Then I started thinking about making the case for AED’s as Holiday gifts!

No other gift has the potential to save a life during a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) like an AED.

No iPhone or Droid app, not a 60in 4XHD Display Flat Screen TV, iPad, XBox or Play Station or Kindle has the capability at this moment, but I would guess there will be an app that would be able to in the future.

800,000 people in the United States will suffer a heart attack this year, of those 800,000, 47,000 will have a second, almost half will have a shockable rhythm, and in any case most will need CPR.

So when you are making your list, and checking it twice think about it…

What is the best gift you can possibly give a person? (hint, every mother knows the answer to this one).
