The fastest ambulance? A motorcycle

See on Scoop.itFour Healthy Hearts

As a young EMT on a Jerusalem ambulance, Eli Beer realized that, stuck in brutal urban traffic, they often arrived too late to help. So he organized a group of volunteer EMTs — many on foot — ready to drop everything and dash to save lives in their neighborhood. Today, United Hatzlah uses a smartphone app and a fleet of “ambucycles” to help nearby patients until an ambulance arrives. With an average response time of 3 minutes, last year, they treated 207,000 people in Israel. And the idea is going global.

Dr. Jose Lepervanche Net‘s insight:

"When my own father collapsed a few years ago from a cardiac arrest, one of the first volunteers to arrive to save my father was one of these Muslim volunteers from east Jerusalem who was in the first course to join Hatzalah. And he saved my father. Could you imagine how I…

Life is a Continuous System – Last Day Lecture Spring 2013

Life is a Continuous System – Last Day Lecture Spring 2013

Everything is a system. Input, process, output, and feedback. Analyze life as a system and design a new system if needed. Test the system. Move on and climb your own mountain. Use personal SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats). Row your own canoe. SMART goals and waves of life.

I believe in CPR/AED. Be prepared to save a life. (Video)

I believe in CPR/AED. Be prepared to save a life. (Video)

Video made for the Sudden Cardiac Foundation.

I BELIEVE in one God because I have faith. He saved my life after my sudden cardiac arrest during a summer camp. He kept me alive to share this message. I BELIEVE in one Lord, Jesus Christ, who was with me in intensive care when I was fighting for my life. I BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, who gave strength to the Scout leaders who applied CPR on me for 45 minutes, and to the person who shocked me 5 times with the AED of the Boy Scouts Camp. I BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, who gave calm to my wife who laid hands on me. She was praying there all the time. I BELIEVE in my Church, my children, my family, my friends, and my community who prayed for my healing. Because I BELIEVE, I thank you all.

 

 

Jamboree participants attempt a record-breaking CPR and AED Course

Jamboree participants attempt a record-breaking CPR and AED Course

There are so many world records that are extremely dangerous (longest distance jumped by motorcycle; deepest scuba dive) that it’s nice to see one that’s for saving lives instead of endangering them.

That was the goal behind today’s attempt at breaking the record for CPR and AED training taking place at one time. Thousands of Scouts, Scouters, and visitors took an hourlong course on CPR and the proper use of an Automated External Defibrillator, or AED.

While Scouts and Scouters counted to 30 chest compressions on their training mannequins, event organizers counted Scouts and Scouters, checking to see how close to the world record they had come.

Results weren’t yet available, but one thing is for sure: sending thousands of boys and adults home with the knowledge about how to save a life was a winning situation for everyone involved.

Before one of the day’s courses, representatives from Cardiac Science awarded four lucky troops with two free AEDs.

These troops submitted winning entries in a video contest. Entrants needed to create a short video telling why AEDs were so important. Below you’ll see representatives from two of the winning troops. The first, Jose Lepervanche, didn’t work on his troop’s video, but he shared an inspirational story. He’s a Scouter from Jacksonville, Fla., and he shared the story about how an AED saved his life.

While at a council camp, he suddenly collapsed. Scouts rushed to his side and tried to revive him after calling 911. But fortunately for Lepervanche, the camp had purchased an AED and used it to save his life. He was there to tell his story because his camp was prepared, he said.

Because the troops got two AEDs each, they can keep one and give the other to a worthy community group, such as a school, church, or other organization.
