Approximately 6,000 children experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year and
while some bystanders may not feel comfortable performing CPR, the American Heart Association reports there’s a greater chance of survival if an AED (automated external defibrillator) is used in an emergency cardiac event. Dr. Jen Arnold, medical director of simulation at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, explains how this easy-to-use device
could save a life.   HopkinsAllChildrens.org
