Daviess County Community Hospital Foundation Purchases AEDs For High Schools

Last updated on Friday, December 14, 2018

(WASHINGTON) - The Daviess Community Hospital Foundation Board of Directors approved funding for Automatic Electronic Defibrillators for the athletic departments at Barr-Reeve High School, North Daviess High School, and Vincennes University.

Director of Athletic Training at Daviess Community Hospital's CORE Center Scott Sell gave a presentation to the foundation board outlining the need and benefits of having an AED unit for athletic trainers at each school.

Sells says research shows that the chance of survival from a cardiac event decreases 10 percent for every minute an AED is not applied.
