First staff inservice!

10-8-06: After the fair at Loma Linda Academy, we had our first staff inservice--CPR and AED certification!

This picture of the class was taken by Junior Staffer Summer Medina.

Practicing their ABC's on the dummies!

Now are staff is ready to provide the life-saving procedures should the need arise. We also were AED certified and will soon be getting one of those in our facility. It is becoming law for all health and fitness clubs to have one starting July 2007.

I recently published an article on drug rehab – here is a quote from it, in case you are interested:

Statistics give us more and more pieces of information that are bound to worry us, to make us react and change something if we can. More and more people and in earlier and earlier stages of their life die of a heart disease. Statistics, only in the US, are extremely alarming:
- Every 30 seconds someone dies because of a heart disease;
- More than 2.500 Americans die daily because of heart diseases;
- Every 20 seconds there is a person dying from a heart attack;
- Each year 6 million people are hospitalized because of a heart disease;
- The number 1 killer is a heart disease.
Although AEDs are not a universal panacea for all heart diseases, nothing else can compete to its major feature, that of actually re-starting the heart after it has been stopped by a sudden cardiac arrest. Under these circumstances is it necessary to ask you why anyone in this world, any family, in any home would hope for having such a device in their first aid locker?

If you feel this help, please drop by my website for additional information, such as Public Access Defibrillatio PAD or additional resources on AED manufacturers such as Philips defibrillators, Zoll AEDs or Cardiac Science AEDs.
