Training For AED. Nov. 3, 2019. After 9:00AM Mass. In Lower Church Hall.

YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH – St. Vitus Parish has acquired an “AED” device. An AED is an “automated external defibrillator” that is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (known as arrhythmia) and allows a normal rhythm to resume following a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

Individuals need to be trained on how to handle such a device. Our parishioners, Dr. Matt Muller and Emily Baznik, a nurse at University Hospitals, will lead a training session on Nov. 3, 2019 (Sunday), immediately after the 9:00 AM Mass in the lower church hall. Such training certifies an individual in the state of Ohio for three years. A limit of 15 people will be trained at this session. Parishioners interested in attending this training session
should contact the parish rectory, 216-361-1444.

Or email Louise Strauss at “lousie.strauss@uhhospitals.org”  The AED for St. Vitus Parish is a “LifePak CR-Plus” device. Parishioners can watch a video prior to hands-on learning at https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uhZPzvyu160.
