"... the window to shock the hearts of women into restarting closes sooner than in men. The chances of surviving among women were about half those of men."

Nicely Done!

Great message from Mesa Fire - Fast action can save lives. #HeartMonth #firefighters

“Heart attack” is NOT the same thing as cardiac arrest.

Heart attacks are caused by a blockage that stops blood flow to the heart. By contrast, cardiac arrest is caused when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. It’s like a light switch, one minute it’s ON the next it’s OFF.

Death can result quickly if proper steps aren’t taken immediately. Cardiac arrest can be reversible in some victims if it's treated within a few minutes. Call 911 – Start CPR – Use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) if available. Fast action can save lives. #HeartMonth #firefighters ❤️

Doctor springs to action on ice, saves life of fellow hockey player

"It was a very close call," Bryant said. "If bystander CPR wasn't initiated within the first couple of minutes of him going down, we could have a very different outcome."

"I'm very blessed to be here," said the hockey player. "My heart had stopped pumping and I wasn't breathing and my organs were shutting down and I was simply dead."

Last year, the Grand Canyon state became the 32nd U.S. state required to offer CPR training to high schoolers. The Arizona law directs that by July 1, 2019, schools must "provide public school pupils with one or more training sessions in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, through the use of psychomotor skills in an age-appropriate manner, during high school."

The holidays are hard after losing a loved one, here's a Christmas song that speaks volumes....

This is a special song for me and my family. I wrote it with my wife after her dad passed away 3 years ago. It was our first Christmas without him, and Kate was decorating for the holidays. She came into the garage holding a box of ornaments and had tears streaming down her face. She said to me, "It's just a different kind of Christmas this year."

At some point in our life we will all lose someone that is close to us, and that first Christmas without them is a tough one to get through. I hope this song will bring comfort to those who are mourning the loss of someone this season. Please share it with someone who might need to hear it this year.

General information

Chapter Goals: Awareness and Education - The East Valley-Phoenix Chapter is working locally to raise awareness and prevention of sudden cardiac arrest by increasing public access to defibrillators in schools, health clubs, and other venues, and encouraging personal health promotion including diet and exercise education. We also hope to educate the public on disease process and potential intervention. Advocacy and Outreach - The East Valley-Phoenix Chapter is collaborating with local hospitals, physicians, academic centers and industry to spearhead local and state advocacy efforts, participating in valuable community service programs, and make a difference by helping to save lives. This chapter is working hard to raise money to purchase automated external defibrillators (AED) for schools, churches, other public access areas; educate citizens and to raise awareness of this critical health concern.

Tomorrow is John's third birthday. Those who have survived cardiac arrest understand this. Birthdays start all over again after a tragedy like SCA. The worse day of my life and certainly not a good one for him. I will be forever grateful to Joselyn May, the incredible 911 dispatcher who found a way to calm me down and walk me through CPR. She never left me until the EMTs walked through the door 19 minutes later. Without her, we may not have needed those EMTs and all the other medical personnel we met along the way. Until you have to call 911 you do not get how important those dispatchers can be to you. She was my lifeline. To all my friends and family who stood beside me: I thank you so much. The survival rate for cardiac arrest is very low. LEARN CPR. NO REASON NOT TO.
I am a student researcher conducting a study for teens and young adults with cardiac channelopthies (Brugada syndrome, LQTS, SQTS, CPVT, and etc.). I am looking to expand the research in this area because there is a huge gap in research with teens/young adults with these conditions. If interested, please email me at [email protected] and see the flyer below. “Examining Habits and Social Activities of Teenagers and Young Adults.” We are looking for individuals ages 13-22 to complete an online study examining the habits and social activities of adolescents and young adults with and without cardiac rhythm disorders. Participants must have a cardiac rhythm disorder and have an ICD/pacemaker or take medication to be eligible. Participation in this study is confidential! You can complete the survey in as many sessions as needed. It will take about 60 minutes to complete. For more specific information about this study, please send an email to [email protected] and put “Attention Lauren” in the subject line. If under age 18, please have your parent/guardian email your interest to the email address above. *All participants will be eligible to participate in a raffle for a 10-dollar gift card to Target. 1 out of every 10 participants will win!* Lauren Lucente, LPC, MA 4th year psychology student in PCOM’s Psy.D.
