Forward Hearts lets survivors of a sudden cardiac arrest event pay it forward and potentially save another life by donating an AED to the organization of the survivor’s choice.
Stryker is committed to saving lives and making public access Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) more readily available in the workplace and community. The donation of a defibrillator through the Forward Hearts program extends this lifesaving technology to even more people, offering many a better chance of survival in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.
How it works: When a LIFEPAK® CR2, LIFEPAK CR® Plus, LIFEPAK EXPRESS®, or HeartSine samaritan® AED is used to save a life*, the sudden cardiac arrest survivor chooses an organization to receive a donated AED provided by Stryker on behalf of the survivor. If you have a Forward Hearts story, or know of someone who survived a sudden cardiac arrest due to the use of a LIFEPAK AED or a HeartSine samaritan AED, please share your story with us. Learn more about the program and complete the Forward Hearts form at: www.strykeremergencycare.com
* Forward Hearts is available to survivors saved out of hospital in a workplace or community setting by a layperson rescuer. Please refer to www.strykeremergencycare.com for the complete list of requirements to qualify for Forward Hearts after you have survived a sudden cardiac arrest
