AEDs Praised for Saving Wrestler's Life
KWWL-TV
It was a scary couple of minutes at the Iowa state wrestling tournament, when Creston/Orient-Macksburg's Tayler Pettit collapsed after his match. Within moments, he was hooked up to an Automated External Defibrillator, which likely saved his life. "When they hooked him up to it, he was in an irregular (heart) rhythm," said Dr. Dennis Zachary of Family Sports Medicinene. "They gave him a shock and had to give him several shocks by the time they got him to the hospital."

Now the technique is being implemented by one NFL team, and more could soon follow their lead. The prospect of minimizing early muscular strength deficits while protecting healing tissue was the impetus for the Houston Texans to introduce the technique to several of their players.
