3 Minutes to AED
The distance to and from an AED should not take more than 3 minutes for a helping bystander to reasonably travel
AED = Class III
An AED is a Class III medical device that requires a prescription to be purchased
5 Trained/Shift
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that at least 5 CPR/AED trained responders be present on any given shift
Energy Saver
AEDs can be inspected without running self diagnostic tests that drain the main battery
Close Shave
A kit consisting of a razor (in the advent of chest hair) and a pair of shears (for hard to remove clothing) should be placed with the AED
60 Days
Replacement pads, batteries and training renewals should be scheduled 60 days prior to expiration. Delivery times, scheduling issues, and room for error should not hinder readiness

Does marijuana have any effect on your heart?

Please check out our website for all you CPR training needs
 Does marijuana have any effect on your heart? This question is not easy to answer. The known initial effects immediately after smoking or ingesting marijuana are:
Lowered blood pressure, because the marijuana has a dilating effect on blood vessels.This is good for glaucoma patients and those with high blood pressure.
A racing heart, especially when partaking of cannabis with high levels of THC (not good for those with pre-existing heart conditions or a tendency toward paranoia or anxiety).
If someone has a heart condition which might be impacted by either of these effects, like a cardiomyopathy where the heart muscle is thickened and has difficulty beating in the first place, a racing heart may not be advantageous and could possibly lead to heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest.
The truth is the results of recent studies are vague and there hasn’t been enough clinical testing or evidence to prove it is either good or bad for a healthy person’s heart. All they can do is look at reported heart-related hospital visits and deaths, and compare them with either a patient’s admission to using marijuana or urine samples pointing to such. Trying to decide at that point how far back to attribute the use comes into play. Could there be a link if the cardiac incident happened only directly after use? After 24 hours? After a week? A month? A year?
