Cross of Glory has an AED!

Our Capital Appeal campaign has allowed us to purchase an important, life-saving medical device – an automated external defibrillator (AED).

Training Class on August 28th
The Homer Fire Department will be here on Wednesday, August 28th at 6:30 pm to train us on the unit and conduct a non-certification CPR training session. If interested in joining us please let the church office know ASAP. This is a free training.

The following is extracted from heart.org.

What is an AED? 
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly. If not treated within minutes, it quickly leads to death.

Why are AEDs important?
AEDs make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required. Because AEDs are portable, they can be used by non-medical people (lay rescuers).

How does an AED work?
A built-in computer checks a victim’s heart rhythm through adhesive electrodes. The computer calculates whether defibrillation is needed. Audible prompts guide the user through the process. AEDs advise a shock only for ventricular fibrillation or another life-threatening condition called pulseless ventricular tachycardia.

Who can use an AED?
Non-medical personnel such as police, fire service personnel, flight attendants, security guards and other lay rescuers who have been trained in CPR can use AEDs. Although formal training in the use of an AED is not required, it is recommended to help the rescuer increase their comfort and level of confidence.
