Representatives of the Heart Institute at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC), Pomona, New Jersey, presented an automated external defibrillator to the Atlantic City Aquarium Monday through the ARMC Heart Heroes Matching Funds Program.
The ARMC Heart Heroes is a volunteer group that raises funds for the Heart Institute at ARMC through the AtlantiCare Foundation to place AEDs in the community. The Heart Heroes fund a portion of the AED and community groups and/or organizations provide the remaining funds. The presentation at the Aquarium will be the 97th AtlantiCare has made through the Matching Funds Program and through full donations since 2002. AEDs can restore a normal heart rhythm in victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Audible and/or visual prompts guide the user through the process.
