Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
Recently, a Powerheart G3 AED was donated to Body1 Inc., in a giveaway coordinated by AED.com through the LinkedIn group, Medical Device Group.
Body1, Inc., is a cloud technology leader for life science marketing. Body1 creates and hosts online communities to cost-effectively engage and educate nearly 5 million consumers, physicians, and other healthcare stakeholders every year. In partnership with market-leading life science clients ranging from Abbott to the Harvard Health Alumni Association, Body1 deploys and manages web platforms for medical marketing. These include both private label websites and targeted health portals on mobile, tablet, and fixed computing systems.
The Powerheart G3 AED donated is one of the industry's leading AEDs. The AED can determine if a shock is needed, without pressing a button to “automatically” detect the patient’s heart rhythm and shock delivery. It provides continuous monitoring of patients during and after sudden cardiac arrest. With these and many other lifesaving features, Body1 Inc. will be more prepared in an extreme situation.
When asked about the AED donation, Chris Messina, CEO of Body1, said, "We were surprised and delighted to be chosen the winner of an AED from AED.com. As a business which specializes in technology platforms for medical marketing (including a consumer-facing cardiac site at http://Heart1.com) we know how important AED technology is for saving lives. Thank you! Thank you!"
SCA (sudden cardiac arrest) strikes over 350,000 people in the United States every year. The only thing that will potentially save those included in this staggering statistic is a defibrillator. AED.com's mission is spread awareness about Sudden Cardiac Arrest and the importance of quick access to an AED.
