KILLLEEDY GAA CLUB NOTES
Killeedy GAA & Camogie Healthy Club Project:
Help Killeedy GAA & Camogie Club to receive a brand new, state-of-the-art AED
The GAA are participating in the Community Heart Program to assist in raising the funds required to enable the placement and upgrade of existing AED’s, or automated external defibrillators, in every Club.
What is an AED?
An AED is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It is a sophisticated, portable, easy to use medical device that can analyse the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electronic shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective heart rhythm.
