We need your help for the purchase of vital equipment
Ed Allen has no memory of the 15 minutes he was “down.”
Having the right people and the right equipment when seconds mattered made the difference for Ed that day. He recalls being on the treadmill – then Dr. Shelig taking his arm and leading him to the bed. His next recollection was hearing a code being called and a rush of people around him.
A defibrillator was used to restart Ed’s heart.
Defibrillators have three different functions: to apply electricity to a patient’s heart during a cardiac arrest, to double as a temporary pacemaker to keep a patient’s heart going until they can get to another hospital or into surgery, and to correct arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat).
Our medical professionals are here to provide the best care possible.
Cardiac emergencies like Ed’s can occur at any time. I hope we can count on you to help us with this important purchase that will enable us to provide life-saving care for the people who call Grey-Bruce their home.
Please give today.
