#BlufftonHeartsMatter AED Handover
Arrhythmia Alliance - US  was pleased to announce that on Tuesday July 2, 2019 in partnership with the Bluffton Township Fire District, two Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) that were unfortunately stolen over the Memorial day weekend, were replaced at the Alljoy Public Dock and Bluffton Linear Trail.

Thanks to the outstanding generosity of the local community these life-saving devices are now back where they belong, ready to be used in the unfortunate event of an out-of-hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), to increase the chance of survival to over 50%.

#HeartSafe Summers
Celebrate the arrival of summer by preparing snacks that will help to replenish your body and keep your heart healthy. Below are some easy ways to prepare delicious #HeartSafe snacks during the summer:

🍉 Fruit Pops:  Homemade freezer pops are an easy, fun treat for kids to make. Combine fruit like peaches, grapes, berries or watermelon. Place them in paper cups, insert a popsicle stick, freeze overnight and enjoy!

🥒 Veggies: Keep a variety of colorful veggies on hand that stay cool and crunchy for a refreshing treat – baby carrots, cucumber slices, and celery sticks are just a few ideas.

🍓 Fruit Smoothies:  Blend your favorite fresh fruits with fat-free or low-fat yogurt and ice for a refreshing drink or freeze and eat with a spoon like a frozen ice chill.

🥜 Trail Mix:  Make your own trail mix using your favorite unsalted or lightly salted nuts, seeds and unsweetened dried fruits (just be sure to keep your servings to 1/3 cup).

Stories From the Heart
"A while back, we had a Sudden Cardiac Arrest incident for which none of us was adequately prepared or equipped. The feeling of helplessness at a time when lifesaving help was required was defeating.
After this event, a good friend of mine reacted in-part by scheduling CPR/AED training. I did the same. Doing so pushed me beyond my comfort zone, but it was important to do.

CPR/AED training was empowering.
Then one day this past Spring while on my drive to work I came upon an elderly man who had fallen from his bicycle at the curb of an intersection. Nobody had yet noticed. I stopped my car and shouted for someone to call 911.

More to the point of the CPR training, I felt calm and comfortable addressing the heightened situation, checking for consciousness, pulse, and breathing in the short time before additional help arrived.

Nothing heroic, I promise, but as others who were far more qualified arrived, first an off-duty EMT, then a doctor, then a nurse, then someone who knew the gentleman, I became distinctly aware that for the brief time required to take a CPR training course, and for the generosity of the many who came to help, this man was given the chance he needed to be transported by ambulance to the hospital where his family was able to meet him and he received fully-qualified medical attention.
I write this with the hope that at least one other person steps forward, beyond that point of comfort, to be ready to help someone in their time of need."
