We have just been informed by our friends at Peel Regional Paramedic Services that teachers from Chinguacousy Secondary School used a MIKEY (AED) to successfully revive an individual that had suffered a Sudden Cardiac Arrest while participating in a sporting activity.
CPR was started and shocks were administered by the MIKEY (AED) prior to Paramedics arrival. Paramedics confirmed he was responsive upon arrival, and was taken to a local hospital for further care.
We’ve been told the individual is recovering, and should be released in the upcoming days.
Mikey Young At Heart
This defibrillator was placed at Chinguacousy Secondary School through our Mikey Young At Heart program. So far, the Mikey Young at Heart program has placed over 280 MIKEY AEDs in schools including the Toronto District School Board, Peel District School Board, Halton District School Board, Halton Catholic District School Board, and Limestone District School Board.
Recently, The Mikey Network finished placing MIKEYs in each of the more than 250 public schools in Peel Region.
This is the 36th person that we are aware of, saved with a MIKEY. We are so grateful a MIKEY AED was on hand when this man needed it, and most importantly, people willing to use it were there to spring into action!
