Are You Aware?
In the Summer of 2015 the Silver Pond Board of Directors purchased a Cardiac Science Powerheart G3 Plus Automatic AED?
It's located in the clubhouse hallway, on the right wall, just before the rear exit.

*This is not a CPR class. This is a 20-30 minute demonstration of how to use an AED. 
If you're interested in a 3 hour CPR class, please indicate that in the message.


Did You Know?

  • The average response time for first responders once 911 is called is 8-12 minutes.
  • For each minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced approximately 10%.

Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Over 350,000 people will suffer from sudden cardiac arrest this year .

It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere and at any age. 


An AED is the only effective treatment for restoring a regular heart rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest and is an easy to operate tool for someone with no medical background.

Time is of the essence!

Why did Silver Ponds purchase the Powerheart G3 Plus Automatic?
          • Every day, to ensure anytime functionality, the AED self checks all main components (battery, hardware, software, and pads).
          • Every week, the AED completes a partial charge of the high-voltage electronics.
          • Every month, the AED charges the high-voltage electronics to full energy.
          • If anything is amiss, the Rescue Ready status indicator on the handle changes from green to red and the device will emit an audible alert to prompt the user to service the unit. 
            • In sum, a Powerheart AED is Rescue Ready when a life depends on it.
          • Most anyone can operate a Powerheart AED G3 Plus
          • In the chaos that follows sudden cardiac arrest, concerned but untrained people are hesitant to intervene. Will they know what to do? There’s a life on the line!
          • The Powerheart AED G3 Plus with RescueCoach™ voice prompts to talk rescuers through the steps.
          • When the rescuer applies the pads, the device analyzes the heart rhythm and “knows” when to deliver (or not deliver) the shock.
          • The shock is delivered automatically, with no button to push, and no human intervention.
          • After the shock, the unit prompts for CPR with a built-in metronome that sets the pace for proper chest compressions.
In a University of Pennsylvania simulated rescue study, the AED G3 Plus helped untrained adults deliver CPR of a quality similar to that of trained professionals.*
