Medical Device Depot, Inc. Donates EKG Machines to Promise for Haiti

Medical Device Depot recently donated two GE Mac 1200 EKG Machines to Promise for Haiti. These EKG machines will be used to assist daily services at the Hopital Bienfaisance de Pignon in Haiti.

Dr. Omer L. Shedd has these words to say regarding the donation:

 


I wanted to write a note of my sincerest appreciation for your kind donation of ekg machines for Promise for Haiti.  This hospital mission is truly unique in that it requires Haitians to have an active role in their health care and is not just another donation driven facility giving solely handouts.  Their mission is to teach the Haitians skills to eventually become self sustaining.

I will be going back down later this year and will try to get some pictures to you.  We look to start implanting pacemakers in early 2015 and could not have done this without your help!!!

Thank you again,
Omer L. Shedd, MD, FACC, FHRS

Should Retailers be Required to Carry AEDs?

The question of a retail store’s responsibility to carry an AED became big news after involvement by the California Supreme Court. A recent article written by a Defibtech employee investigates the pros and cons of retail stores carrying life-saving defibrillators.

Current trends suggest that AEDs, such as Defibtech’s own Lifeline AED, are becoming an expected site at large stores. As the article notes:

“Having an AED on the premises, rather than depending on EMS to travel to a retail store, is important because experts recognize “speed to shock” is the most important aspect of AED lifesaving. Up to 90% of sudden cardiac arrest victims receiving AED treatment within two minutes survive, but the chances of survival decrease with each passing minute. By 10 minutes, most die.”

Medical Device Depot carries defibrillators from all major manufacturers, including Defibtech. For more information on this device, or to make a purchase, call 877-646-3300 or visit Medical Device Depot’s website.
