Foundation donates 6 defibrillators to park district
from Northbrook Star
The Jennifer Lynn Snyder Teen Heart Foundation plans to donate six automated external defibrillators to the Northbrook (Ill.) Park District during the next several weeks. Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the country and using an AED is the only way to restart a heart after it has stopped, according to Michele Snyder, who started the foundation. But one must first recognize sudden cardiac arrest, call 911, start CPR hard and fast, and immediately use an AED, she added.
