Robert H. Trenkamp, Jr.: An Advocate Who Made A Difference

Robert H. Trenkamp, Jr., 74, of Skidaway Island, Georgia, suffered sudden cardiac arrest at his daughter's home in Zurich, Switzerland, over the Christmas holidays. Since he was a staunch advocate for improving survival from cardiac arrest, his family was well-versed in the critical importance of CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs). They immediately gave him pedal CPR and used the AED that was by his bedside. Emergency Medical Services arrived within minutes and he was life-flighted to one of the best heart hospitals in Europe, where he received state-of-the-art cardiac care.
