Recently speaking with ABC-7 Chicago, Dr. Chiampas stressed the importance of having AEDS accessible and in trained hands when an emergency strikes. In Chicago, the devices can currently be found throughout the city including in Chicago Public Schools and at the airports.
Dr.Chiampas and students at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine are working to make Chicago an even more AED-friendly city by training the next generation on how to help heart attack victims. The medical students recently produced a training video targeted for middle school students that shows how to use an AED and stresses the importance of becoming CPR-certified.
“The reality is everyone needs to know how to use AEDs,” said Dr. Chiampas during his ABC-7 interview.
