Take a Step UP for Survival

NEW YORK - Amid all the technology used in hospitals to keep critically ill people alive, doctors are looking at whether the low-tech step stool can make a meaningful difference.

100 AEDs To Be Donated to Worthy Causes and Organizations

Brentwood, TN--In 2012, will be giving away 100 AEDs to worthy causes and organizations. Why? To raise awareness of the need for AEDs (automated external defibrillators) anywhere and everywhere sudden cardiac arrest can potentially strike. Unfortunately, that indeed means everywhere: home, work, on the road, public events, etc. If you happen to find yourself in a hospital or fire house, you can rest assured that someone will be there with the appropriate equipment to help you. Anywhere else and it’s a roll of the dice. After five minutes without treatment from an AED, a victim's chances of survival and recovery are dramatically reduced. At the ten-minute mark, hope is lost.

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.
