Health MinistryZoll 002

The Health Ministry is a group of dedicated members of Grace Episcopal Church dedicated to help saving lives. With the help of a significant contribution, the Church Vestry invested in an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). An AED is a device that is used to deliver an electric shock through the chest into the heart during a sudden cardiac arrest. The AED has the ability to analyze a person’s heart rate to determine if they need an electric shock.

 

The normal function of the heart creates an electrical signal that contracts the heart and pumps blood through the body. In Sudden Cardiac Arrest, these electrical signals malfunction and blood no longer pumps effectively through the body. This is called Ventricular Fibrillation and can be treated with an AED when used soon after onset of SCA. Risk factors for SCA include obesity and cardiovascular disease.

 

The AED is a temporary life saving device that is intended for use prior to the arrival of professional Emergency Medical Services.

 

In addition to tZoll 003he very important piece of equipment, we quickly realized the need to have our volunteer members professionally trained in First Aid, CPR and the use of the AED equipment. To that goal, members of the congregation who are formally trained and certified in First Aid, CPR and go through a familiarization course on the ZOLL AED Plus, are welcome members of the ministry.

 

To join the ministry, one must provide the Ministry Program Administrator with your currently valid First Aid and CPR Training Certificates, issued by the American Red Cross. The Ministry Program Administrator will arrange for a familiarization training course on our AED. Members are also responsible to update their training certification every two years.
