Nathan Poulsen of the Poulsen Real Estate team donated an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to T. H. Bell. Mr. Poulsen, during a meeting with teachers and staff, expressed his appreciation for the school and staff as a former Minuteman himself. He wanted to give back something that was meaningful to the school. This gives T.H. Bell Jr. High a total of 3 AED's strategically located within building. Thank you Mr. Poulsen!
An AED is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. Sudden cardiac arrest is not a heart attack. Heart attacks occur when there is a blockage. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the electrical system to the heart malfunctions and suddenly becomes very irregular. This is the largest cause of natural death in the United States.
