Cardiac Science is proud to partner with the US Lacrosse organization to provide its members with information and special pricing on automated external defibrillators (AEDs) to protect players, coaches and fans from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
Why is this alliance so important for you?
More than 365,000 people die in North America every year from sudden cardiac arrest. 7,000 of the victims are young. The worst part? It’s sudden – the first warning is often death. You need to be prepared.
Defibrillation within three minutes lifts the chance of survival to 70 percent. Local EMS services typically can’t respond that quickly. The presence of an AED can make all the difference. The American Heart Association estimates improved early defibrillation efforts could save 40,000 more lives in the US alone.
Lacrosse players can be especially at risk. Commotio Cordis – a condition that results from a blunt impact to the chest can lead to cardiac arrest – and it happens to seemingly healthy young athletes.
Do your part to raise the level of safety and protection of your team, school, and league.
Either: Fill out the “Learn More” information on the right to be contacted by your local AED Specialist. We will follow up with you promptly.
