CPR & AED Awareness Week Is June 1-7, 2015

by EMP Editor on June 3, 2015

We’re in the midst of CPR & AED Awareness Week!  What have you done to raise awareness in your community?

Cardiac arrest strikes immediately and without warning.  It’s never too late to go over some basics, so let’s review the warning signs and emergency treatment of cardiac arrest.

Here are the signs:

Sudden loss of responsiveness

  • No response to tapping on shoulders
  • Does nothing when you ask if he’s OK

If these signs of cardiac arrest are present:

Yell for help

  • Tell someone to call 9-1-1 and get an AED (if one is available)
  • If you are alone with an adult who has these signs of cardiac arrest, call 9-1-1 and get an AED (if one is available)

Check breathing

  • If the person isn’t breathing or is only gasping, give CPR

Push hard and push fast

  • Use an AED as soon as it arrives by turning it on and following the prompt

Keep pushing

  • Until the person starts to breathe or move or someone with more advanced training takes over

EMP carries a huge selection of AEDs, including recertified AEDs, CPR pocket masks, and the NEW CPR RsQ Assist®, as well as assorted CPR manikins for your teaching and training needs.

Name the Bear Contest Winner

by EMP Editor on December 19, 2014

The winner of our Name the Bear Contest was Bernard, a fireman based out of the University of Massachusetts Memorial Hospital.  Bernard’s entry of Am-Bear-Lance was voted the top choice by the Emergency Medical Products’ employees.

Bernard shared a touching story with the EMP group relative to the naming of the bear, and we thank Bernard for his story.  Congratulations Bernard, your 5’ stuffed bear has shipped, and is on its way to you.  It should be arriving at your doorstep on Christmas Eve!

After we launched the contest, we also stumbled upon a baby bear that looked very similar to the large stuffed bear we had sitting in our lobby.  A picture of baby bear is shown below.  In the spirit of the holiday season, we decided at the last minute to donate baby bear.  We donated him to a local shelter for homeless and abused children, and hopefully he will bring a smile and soft hug to someone in need.

So, now you know the story of the bears and EMP.  We hope it made someone’s holiday season a little brighter.

On behalf of the employees at Emergency Medical Products, we wish you all safe and happy holidays and a Bear-y Christmas!
