found an article at Fitness Business Pro, and wanted to share his thoughts on the importance of an AED. The story can be found here. Here’s an excerpt:

According to the lawsuit, choosing not to use the AED “involved an extreme degree of risk that the patron who suffered sudden cardiac arrest would not be able to be saved and would in fact die, as happened with Mr. Durkin.”

This is what James wanted to share:

To me an AED is just like a Air bag on a car or fire extinguisher for a business, you purchase them with the hopes of never having to use them however the day you need them you are very pleased that you have one.  AED’s can increase survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) by as much as 60 percent; the cost continues to go down as the ease of use continues to go up. AEDs save lives.
