February is Heart Month!

Today marks the first day of Heart Month! Heart Month will run from Feb 1 – 28, 2017. Check back daily for exciting news and event information.

        Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American adults, accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States. Nearly half of Americans have at least one risk factor for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, obesity, physical inactivity, or an unhealthy diet. Risk also increases with age.
        Individuals of all ages can reduce their risk by making lifestyle changes and managing medical conditions with proper treatment. Take a CPR/AED class. Encourage your family members to make heart-healthy changes and offer support along the way.
        Our 2017 Heart Month focus is prevention. Learn more about heart disease prevention and heart-healthy behavior changes!
        We kick off the month with National Go Red Day on Friday, Feb. 3rd. On National Wear Red Day, be sure to wear something red to show your support for women with heart disease and stroke.

Parents unite to combat sudden cardiac arrest among young athletes

As TODAY’s “Winning at All Costs” series focusing some of the risks and dangers facing young athletes, Jenna Bush Hager speaks to One Beat CPR + AED partner, Parent Heart Watch, a group of parents who are trying to save kids’ lives in memory of the children they lost to sudden cardiac arrest during sports activities. It “can happen to any child,” one parent warns – but the chance of surviving it rises dramatically if an automated external defibrillator is nearby and accessible.

Sheriff’s Deputy Awarded for Saving Life with CPR and AED

To Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Ethan Moss, February 4th response to a 911 call was just part of the routine, but for homeowners, Tim and Roby Bush, Deputy Moss was a hero that day.  Upon finding Tim Bush unresponsive and not breathing, Deputy Moss immediately administered the automated external defibrillator (AED) and started CPR.  After just 2 minutes, Bush began breathing on his own and was transported to the hospital. The 54 year old has since been discharged from the Hospital and made a full recovery.  Deputy Moss received a Commendation award for saving the man’s life.

Deputy Moss, a four year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, husband and father of two boys, and United States Army veteran, is no stranger to saving lives. In July of 2015, Moss also saved a 62 year old man by administering an AED and CPR.

Law enforcement is often the first on scene to a medical emergency. Receiving CPR and first aid training and carrying an AED enables them to act quickly to save a life.  Deputy Moss was quick to apply his training to save a life; Mr. and Mrs. Bush couldn’t be more grateful.
