Learn about CPR and AEDs and other Fun Health Information
Our first annual Idaho Heart Foundation Heart Ball was a huge success! We had wonderful first class entertainment by Robert Conti, Jazz Guitarist and then danced the night away with the Rail City Jazz! The cakes were amazing and food fabulously scrumptious!
Thanks to our sponsors and patrons, we were able to raise money to purchase AEDs, training equipment, and LUCAS devices for community first responders. We were able to also fund our first annual Youth Cardiovascular Health Awareness Event (Gotta Keep the Beat Goin').
Idaho Heart Foundation, located in Idaho Falls, Idaho, is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization (EIN 81- 3600228) dedicated to the education and awareness of cardiovascular health in the community. Our volunteers of all ages are committed! We provide demonstrations at public events and educate all ages on cardiovascular disease and prevention. With focus on CPR and AED training.
635,000 Americans have a heart attack every year and account for every 1 in 3 deaths. This equates to every 34 seconds 1 American will have a heart attack and that every 1 minute someone will die of their cardiovascular event. Current data shows 22% of these persons are already dead by the time help arrives, 37% of persons having a heart attack outside of a hospital are witnessed by someone. But there is hope, 33% received CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) by someone before help arrived! Of the persons who had CPR, 11% survived compared to the persons who had a witnessed heart attack and did not get CPR (only 7% survival). An Automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) was used in 4% of victims before help arrived and of these 30% survived! CPR and AEDs save lives!
Our mission is to providde education and awareness of cardiovascular health in our community. We have three focuses that creat a full cirle of support in the community. We provide AEDs and Live saving equipment to first responders and public venues. We support the eudaction and awareness of AED and CPR for our youth in the community. Finally we provide support group events for patients who have suffered from cardiovascular disease.
