Heart Safe

The NMMC Heart Institute is helping make ours a heart-safe community by supporting the efforts of the Weston Reed Foundation. In 2009 through a grant from Cardiac Science, NMMC donated 25 AEDs to the cause.

Sudden cardiac arrest impacts people of all ages, including many outwardly healthy individuals with no known heart conditions. Predicting who, when or where is impossible. The only definitive emergency treatment is defibrillation, an electric pulse (shock) to the heart.

Launched in 2007 after the sudden cardiac death of 11-year-old Weston Reed at the Ballard Park Sportsplex in Tupelo, the foundation has placed approximately 100 automated external defibrillators in parks, schools, law enforcement vehicles and public venues throughout Lee County.

In addition, cardiologists and staff from the Heart Institute assist the Weston Reed Foundation and NMMC's Sports Medicine Program with free sports physicals each May and August for area student-athletes. These volunteers perform free EKGs as well as echocardiograms for individuals who need further evaluation..
