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 non-profits organizations in an effort to increase survival rates for people who experience SCA. 

Applications will be reviewed quarterly. The next review will take place in September 2022. Due to an overwhelming response, funds are limited for the remaining calendar year.
