Life Saving Device Placement

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) strikes more than 350,000 Americans each year — nearly one death every two minutes. Giving CPR and using an automated external defibrillator (AED) early nearly doubles the chance of survival. For each minute without such treatment, the chance of survival decreases 7–10 percent.

The Iowa Heart Foundation program awards AEDs to Iowa businesses and organizations in an effort to increase survival rates for people who experience SCA. Donations and funds raised at the annual “Run for Your Life” run/walk event each August assist in the placement of these AEDs.

Below you will find a list of our most recent AED placements organized by year.
