AED Donated to Reedsburg County Club

 Sudden cardiac arrest is among one of the top causes of death in the US. When someone is in cardiac arrest every second counts.

Reedsburg Area Medical Center Foundation was proud to recently donate three lifesaving AED’s to the aed to rccReedsburg Country Club with RAMC’s education team members providing training for Country Club staff. An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a portable, easy to use device that checks a person’s heart and delivers an electric shock if their heart has stopped beating normally. Having quick access to an AED has shown to increase a person’s odds of survival.
