St. Mary Medical Center recently donated an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to members of the Hobart Little League.

An AED is a portable electronic device about the size of a small lunch box that checks the heart rhythm. During a cardiac emergency, it can audibly prompt and deliver an electric shock that will disrupt or stop the heart’s irregular rhythmic electrical activity. The shock will give the heart an opportunity to re-establish an effective rhythm on its own, providing precious minutes before EMS arrives.

“Fortunately, we haven’t had to use one of these at our facilities yet,” said Rick Zormier, president of the Hobart Little League. “But with 400 games a year and more than 300 kids in the league, there are thousands of parents, grandparents, coaches, and kids who now have added protection with the availability of this device.”
