Automated External Defibrillator

Our eyes were opened to the importance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) last year after Murphy Jensen’s near-death experience at a celebrity tournament in Colorado.  Jensen was lucky an AED was available when he suffered cardiac arrest on the court.  Of the 400,000 Americans who experience cardiac arrest each year, fewer than 5% are treated promptly with an AED, and fewer than 10% survive.  Jensen had a different set of odds; by having AEDs and responders readily available, the tournament facility had increased his chance of survival to more than 90%.

 

We are thankful for the tennis facilities that have AEDs ready for use, and we encourage facilities that don’t have AEDs to consider getting them.  If you, or your club, have interest in purchasing an AED, AED123 from is offering UomoSport customers $200 off with discount code: UomoSport.  Pictured here is their Outdoor AED Cabinet Bundle.
