HeartSine® Technologies, a world leader in personal and public access defibrillators, is an official sponsor of the 2014 Federation of International Lacrosse World Championship, presented by Trusted Choice, providing its popular samaritan® PAD automatic external defibrillators (AED) for the medical tents at the event.
“Because sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a risk on any athletic field, whether due to commotio cordis or an undiagnosed heart problem, it’s imperative to have AEDs on site at sporting events like the World Lacrosse Championships,” says Chris O’Brien, HeartSine’s director of strategic accounts for North America. “In fact, having an AED on the side lines where any sports team practices and plays can be the difference between life and death should a player or referee suffer an SCA. This is especially true of contact sports like lacrosse, football and hockey, where there the risk of a fatal chest impact is higher.”
“HeartSine is one of the nation’s leading suppliers of invaluable AEDs, and we appreciate its support of the FIL World Championship,” said Bill Schoonmaker, vice president of strategy and business development at US Lacrosse.
The medical tents at the WLC will be equipped with HeartSine Samaritan PAD 350P AEDs, which feature easy-to understand visual and voice prompts that guide a user through the rescue process, including CPR coaching which verbally guides the rescuer through the CPR process. The most robust AED available on the market, providing the highest level of moisture and dust ingress protection in the industry, the SAM 350P AED is ideally suited to use in a medical tent and on a sports side line.
