Erlanger Murphy Medical Center donated an automated external defibrillator (AED) to the Peacock Performing Arts Center in Hayesville, NC. 
 
“We are pleased to be able to answer the request of the performing arts center to provide this life-saving device for the community,” stated Mark Kimball, CEO of Erlanger Murphy Medical Center. “When a cardiac arrest occurs, time is of the essence.  With these machines readily available they, along with the proper medical care, can increase the likelihood of survival.  We want our community to have that peace of mind.”
 
According to the American Heart Association, sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States.
The association also states that a victim of sudden cardiac arrest is more likely to survive if they receive defibrillation through an AED within the first minute. 
 
LIFE FORCE 6, Erlanger’s air medical service based in Andrews, NC will provide training to the Peacock Performing Arts Center staff in January.  Although training is not required to use an AED, it is encouraged for all staff who work near AEDs learn how to use them properly, officials said.
