AMERICAN MED SUPPLY AED GIVEAWAY RAISES AWARENESS
Octobers Grand Prize: An Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
Allentown PA, October 4, 2011 – Every year in the US, sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of more than 350,000 people and hundreds of thousands more worldwide. Today, fewer than 5% of SCA victims survive, largely because trained first responders with an AED do not reach them in time. In most cases, their key to survival is prompt defibrillation therapy. When defibrillation therapy is delayed more than ten minutes, the victim’s chance of survival drops to less than 5 percent. Defibrillators are life savers.
American Med Supply is having a contest and giving away an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) in the month of October in support of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Awareness month. Their goal with the campaign is to get the word out that defibrillators save lives and to eventually know that everyone in America within four minutes a working defibrillator. More than 80% of SCA victims survive when automated external defibrillation occurs within five minutes of the onset of sudden cardiac arrest.
To raise awareness, every month leading up to October, American Med Supply gives away great gifts and prizes like:
- $25 American Express Gift Cards
- $25 Gift Cards to Chili’s, Macaroni Grill, On The Border
