Second AED Save at Canadian Hockey Rink


April 23, 2010  For second time in four months, a seniors hockey league player in Nanaimo, British Columbia, was saved by his teammates using CPR and a ZOLL AED Plus. The player collapsed on the bench during the old-timers game, and two of his teammates, retired firefighters, performed CPR and used the automated external defibrillator. Eight AEDs were installed at various recreation facilities in the city in 2008. 

Four months ago, another old-times hockey player was also revived by teammates using the AED Plus kept at the rink.
