Defibrillator program provides help in a heartbeat
From: Nanaimo Bulletin
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and Yukon has been given a boost in its efforts to provide help in a heartbeat for patients experiencing cardiac arrest.
On Thursday, the federal government announced it would be following through on a $10-million funding committment made in 2011.
It’s good news for B.C. Heart and Stroke’s PAD (Public Access to Defibrillation) program, which will begin rolling out in March.
