Dr. Kerns has a compelling story to share about the day he suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest while at work. His coworkers used CPR and an Advanced Medical Transport Cardio Reviver AED to save his life. During his account, he meets his AMT caregivers for the first time since the incident.
AMT has been recognized nationally for its efforts toward winning the battle against cardiac arrest. To learn more, please visit www.amtci.org or call us at 1-800-457-1143.
No one is safe from the risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. In fact, it's the #1 killer of people over 40 in America. That is why we continue to preach about CPR skills, and continue to place public AED devices. If you would like to learn CPR skills, please reach out to us. We'll teach anyone who is willing to learn.
Covered an interesting story today...
We don't often think about the stress and trauma that the people who help us on our worst days face as part of their jobs. I took a look at the help available to those who help us.
Thanks Josh Bradshaw from Advanced Medical Transport & Jamie Harwood, Peoria County Coroner for being so candid with me about such a personal story for both of you!
