GOAL TO EQUIP ALL TVDSB SCHOOLS, SOCCER FIELDS, BASEBALL FIELDS & REC. CENTRES WITH AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFRIBULATORS (AED'S)
WHAT DO WE DO?
A charity devoted to place AED's in the community sports fields & schools. Raising awareness of life saving CPR and opeation of AED in case of a sudden cardiac arrest, in memory of Andrew Stoddart.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. When this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain & other vital organs.
SCA usually causes death is not treated within minutes. The window of opportunity for using an AED is small defibrillation is more successfull if preformed within 5 minutes of the SCA. The chances of survival decrease 7-10% with every minute that passes after the arrest.
