HeartSine AED Protects Jamaican Olympic Bobsled Team

HeartSine to Donate Additional 10 AEDs to Jamaica Amateur Athletic Foundation if Jamaican Bobsled Team Earns Olympic Medal

PRLog - Feb. 11, 2014 - NEWTOWN, Pa. -- With all the challenges the Jamaican bobsled team had to contend with in returning to the Olympics after a twelve-year hiatus, HeartSine Technologies wanted to ensure that the team was protected in case of a sudden cardiac arrest emergency at its Wyoming training facility.

HeartSine Technologies has donated an automated external defibrillator (AED), called the samaritan PAD 350P, to the Jamaican national team which will compete in the upcoming Winter Games in Sochi.

In addition to the AED which stands ready at the team’s Wyoming training facility, HeartSine is providing an AED to the Jamaica Amateur Athletic Foundation (JAAF) and has committed to provide the foundation with ten additional AEDs if the Jamaican bobsled team takes home a medal for the event.

As a trained medical technician, team captain Winston Watts understands the importance of AEDs.

Says Watts, “As with any sport, in bobsledding you need to be prepared for any medical emergency, including Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  We are grateful for this donation by HeartSine of such a small and lightweight AED.”

“Whether on hand to protect Olympic athletes training for their shot at the gold, or at local sports centers to protect youth with undiagnosed heart issues, AEDs are important devices to have at any event where athletes are training or competing,” says Brian Fawcett, Director of Sales for Latin American and the Caribbean.  “We were truly impressed when we heard this team’s remarkable story of getting to the Olympics and wanted to help in any way we could.  We look forward to watching the team compete and wish them the best of luck in their medal pursuit.”
