iRescU Challenge: Act Now to Win an AED!

The iRescU AED Location Challenge, an innovative project designed to build public automated external defibrillator (AED) public access databases, was launched this weekend at the American Heart Association Resuscitation Science Symposium in Orlando, Florida. The Challenge, which continues through 9:00 am ET tomorrow, invites champions of the cause from around the world to identify and report AED locations. The individual reporting the greatest number of AEDs (must report a minimum of 10 AEDs) will win an AED donated by the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation and Cardiac Science.

So get out your cameras and phones and report as many AED locations as possible. Here’s how:

iRescU App Presented at AHA's Best Original Resuscitation Science Sessions

ORLANDO --The iRescU Project was presented November 12-13 during the American Heart Association Resuscitation Science Symposium during the "Best Original Resuscitation Science" Poster Sessions.



The first poster, CPR/AED Apps: What’s Out There and Are They a Reliable Source of Public Lifesaving Information?, was a qualitative technical review of all English language CPR/AED apps available as of January 2011 (54 apps). Nadine Levick, MD, MPH, and colleagues found that only five of 54 apps had been updated to meet 2010 AHA guidelines, and only one app had been studied for operational validation. Authors concluded there is a need for uniform standards for design, usability, access, and clinical effectiveness of CPR-AED instruction apps.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
