Automatic External Defibrillator

January 19, 2009

As old EMT, we encouraging the campgrounds to have Defibrillators on site.  In Chicago you have an 3% chance of surviving, in Seattle a 16% chance, just because more trained personnel are nearby.

In 4-6 minutes we lose brain cells from lack of oxygen.

More information can be located on the American Heart Association’s website.

Happy Camping,

    Have thought of having an AED on board our RV especially since we RV in Mexico often (like now). Is there a universal sticker a person could place on their RV to show that you have an AED on board available for others?

    For the negative, my question is would you want to save the life of a loved one or watch them DIE? Would yor like to be in the right place at the right time and know you could save the life of a stranger because you have the training in CPR and AED and have a AED available, you would be amazed where AED’s are available and yes campgrounds should be included!

  4. Fred,

    You must be pre-occupied or just too busy to write a decent article. What a waste of time. At least a couple of your articles have been worth –something–, this one sure wasn’t!
