Christmas came early to the Seabrook Island Golf Courses! Five new AEDs, automated external defibrillators, have now been set in place at the restrooms on each of the golf courses. On Crooked Oaks Course, they are located at holes 4, 10 and 14. On Ocean Winds Course, they are located at holes 4 and 14.
An AED is used to help those experiencing cardiac arrest. It is a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. When an AED is present, a life can be saved. Formal training in the use of an AED is not required. AEDs provide audible voice prompts to guide the user through the process. An individual using an AED in a “good faith effort” attempt to save the life of a cardiac arrest victim will be covered by the “Good Samaritan” statute.
