CPR and AED in Action

Marcene McGowen, an instructor in First Aid and an Emergency Medical Technician with Eastside Fire and Rescue, gave an informative refresher course in the uses of CPR and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) machines at Friday’s meeting. Her major message was that CPR doesn’t restart the heart in the event of cardiovascular failure, it only buys time until a medical team can arrive. The AED is the latest technology which actually becomes the critical link in the chain of survival involving victims of cardiac arrest.

“Time is critical in an emergency,” Marcene observed. She revealed a chart that showed damage to the body is not likely within zero to four minutes; damage is possible if the condition is allowed to persist from 4 to 6 minutes; from 6-10 minutes, damage is very likely; and after 10 minutes, it is irreversible.

The Rotary Minute
by Cary Kopczynski

Cary Kopczynski gave the Rotary Minute, featuring the early days of Rotary, when Paul Harris invited four other men to join him for lunch.
