October 16 - Restart a Heart Day.

Every year in Australia 23,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest & sadly only 1 in 10 survives.

Call, Push, Shock.

❤️ Call 000 - follow instructions.

❤️ Push - link hands, push hard & fast.

❤️ Shock - use a AED to shock the person’s heart beat back to life.

Anyone can save a life.
Anyone can use an AED.
Anyone can perform CPR.

Each day, day in, day out numerous patients on our cardiac units are monitored to detect for lethal arrhythmias that lead to cardiac arrest.

Last Sunday was no exception for the vigilance of staff on 32, with a prompt response by Lydia, Keegan, Emily & Sally (rhythm strip below) in restarting the heart of a patient - one shock is all it took to save a life!

Great job team!

What a perfect spring day for the Melbourne Marathon, where strong legs & even stronger hearts were needed.

Former patient & cardiac arrest survivor Benny ran his first marathon & smashed his fundraising goal!

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported Benny with a donation & enormous thanks to Benny for making us the recipient of his fundraising.

Wonderful to also see some of the 32 team out participating in the run, being heart healthy & enjoying the sights of Melbourne.

What an inspiring young man Benny is; a cardiac arrest 3 years ago & he hasn’t forgotten the care he received with the MonashHeart team.

Last year he ran the 1/2 Melbourne Marathon raising almost $2,000.

Tomorrow Benny will run his first full marathon.

Let’s say thanks to Benny & show our support by making a donation & help him smash last years fundraising achievement.

All the best tomorrow Benny from the whole Monash Health MonashHeart team.
