The River Of Life

June 1, 1996, I had just taken a job to build a step down unit from hospital to nursing home at a hospital near my home. I had spent one week in orientation (I was a 30 year Registered Nurse). I had just passed my 50 th birthday in April 1996. I am now 62. On the day I had cardiac death I had been under much stress due to a failing marriage, my children growing up and leaving the nest, and starting a new job. On that day I had a yard sale all day in the heat in front of my Son-in-Laws furniture store. That night I decided to go to an auction in the same town to buy more things to sell for another yard sale. I had taken a sabatacle for about three month from nursing due to having just worked myself down as assistant director of nursing in a 150-bed nursing home. I was under trememdous stress on a daily basis. When I arrived at the auction I saw my daughter( a liscensed practical nurse) and her husband. My husband was not planning to come to the auction.

Ohio - Project Alive (Saving A Life Is Very Easy)

Upper Arlington City Schools AED program (Project Alive - Saving A Life Is Very Easy) has been in place for about six years. 

This collaborative program between the Upper Arlington Fire Division, the Upper Arlington Schools and community representatives aims to put AED's in all the schools, libraries, community recreation facilities, and police cruisers.

So far, they have placed two AED's in each of the five elementary schools, three AED's in both middle schools and seven AED's at the high school campus.  The project includes training and CPR/AED certification for all students at the High School over a four year period with the American Heart Association HeartSaver AED program.
Students are also trained when they take their required High School Health curriculum and have included CPR certification with all Middle School and High School athletic team captains.
