scholarship.jpg AEDSuperstore is a nationwide distributor of automated external defibrillators and related accessories dedicated to increasing awareness and education around CPR and AEDs. AEDSuperstore is located in northern Wisconsin and operates under Allied 100, LLC. AEDSuperstore is offering a bi-annual scholarship of $1,000 to eligible students.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurring out of hospital claims over 350,000 lives each year, but still, many people are unaware of the dangers of this condition. Here are six other facts about SCA and automated external defibrillators (AEDs) you might not be aware of:

  1. SCA can happen to anyone, at any time, regardless of age, race, or gender.
  2. SCA affects roughly 16 people under the age of 18 every day.
  3. Only 1 out of 10 people who have SCA outside of a hospital survive.
  4. The survival rate for SCA victims decays by 10% for every minute without proper
    defibrillation; after 10 minutes, survival is negligible.
  5. AEDs have voice prompts and will talk the rescuer through every step.
  6. Under Good Samaritan Laws, voluntary rescuers are legally protected when aiding those in sudden cardiac arrest distress.

Select one of the previous six facts you were shocked by, previously unaware of, OR wished more people knew about and find a creative way to raise awareness in your community about your chosen fact. Then submit either a video, less than 3 minutes, or short essay, less than 500 words, which describes and/or shows us what you did.

  • Which fact you’re choosing, starting with “I didn’t know that…” or “I wish more people knew…”

AEDs such as the Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3, Defibtech Lifeline, HeartSine samaritan PAD 350P, Philips HeartStart OnSite, Physio-Control LIFEPAK EXPRESS and the ZOLL AED Plus are all examples of defibrillators that are popular among schools that you’ve probably walked passed a million times but never paid attention to.
