As we honor Matthew and celebrate his 18th birthday during the MMJF Online October Fundraiser, we would like to show you how your support will benefit local school and club sports organizations in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky areas. Your donation to The Matthew Mangine Jr. Foundation will help us acquire critical equipment that we will distribute to organizations in our region.
AEDs—automated external defibrillators—are used to treat victims of sudden cardiac arrest; heat index checkers help monitor heat stress temperature; and cold water tubs are used to treat victims of heat stroke and heat-related illnesses.
Here are some of the essential items that your support will provide for youth athletes in our area:
PHILIPS HEARTSTART ONSITE AED WITH SLIM CARRY CASE
The Philips HeartStart HS1 AED assists through the process of treating a victim of suspected sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). HS1 provides practical, real-time guidance through step-by-step voice commands and CPR guidance.
LIFELINE AED SEMI-AUTOMATIC DEFIBRILLATOR
Technologically advanced enough to include all mission critical features necessary to provide the most advanced treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Yet so simple and unintimidating to use that even non-medical personnel can effectively save lives.
GENERAL TOOLS HANDY HEAT INDEX CHECKER
Determines the true heat stress temperature by accounting for air currents, relative humidity, and solar load, in addition to air temperature and relative humidity, making it ideal for athletic trainers and the sports medicine environment.
HEARTSINE SAMARITAN® PAD
The samaritan® PAD 350P is designed especially for use in public areas by providing a sophisticated defibrillator for adult or pediatric use, inside a lightweight and easy-to-operate system.
COOL FIRST TRANSPORT SECOND SOLO TUB
This cold water tub from Preventive Preparation Sports is used for the emergency treatment of heat stroke and heat-related illness.
Through the use of emergency equipment such as the items shown above, we can make sure youth and high school athletes are properly cared for: because no family should have to endure the pain of a sudden death that is preventable.
