Holzer is proud to donate an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for the Christ Episcopal Church in Point Pleasant, WV. Shown pictured is Gene Wood, Senior Warden, Vestry Committee, center, with Jennifer Spradlin, RN, Holzer Cardiac Cath Lab/Cardiac Data Registry, left, and Lori Cremeans, RN, MSN, CRRN, CWOCN, Director, Holzer Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Services, right. An AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias in a patient, and is able to treat them through the application of electrical therapy, which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish rhythm. With simple audio and visual commands, AEDs are designed to be easy to use when needed.
