Cindy Dunbar, Director of Customer Care, with AED Superstore, the world’s largest distributor of automated external defibrillators joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health, Emergency Care & Health News Channels to discuss sudden cardiac arrest and the chain of survival.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Cindy Dunbar discuss the following:

  • When it comes to sudden cardiac arrest, there has been a lot of talk about the Chain of Survival. Let’s talk about that today. What is the chain of survival and what are each of the links?
  • So obviously calling 911 is at the first step because you want to get EMS on the way so you can get to the fourth link, right?
  • The next link in the chain is early CPR.  Not just CPR, but early CPR.  Why is that?
  • So if early CPR is important, than early defibrillation must be just as important?
  • Next in the chain is EMS arrival - and that must be a great relief for the rescuer!
  • What/Which is advanced hospital care?

 

For almost 20 years, Cindy Dunbar has worked in the retail industry in one capacity or another. Managing retail stores, Purchasing Manager for a small group of stores, owning a retail store and then working the other side of sales by being the Midwest Upper Regional Sales Manager for Cornell Trading, Inc. Being involved in sales from all different perspectives provided her the experience and knowledge that has helped her in Customer Service for AED Superstore since 2007.  

Starting as a Customer Service Representative she learned all different aspects of the business itself and the nuances of the AED industry.  Over the years she worked her way up to Customer Service Manager, Business Development Manager and is now the Director of Customer Care.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Amber Neller discuss the following:

  • I read a startling fact the other day that stated every 72 hours a US athlete dies of sudden cardiac arrest – tell me why that is and what can be done about it.
  • So what can be done?  It seems like an ECG is an important piece of the puzzle to determining if an athlete should be participating in a sport – especially something rigorous like football or basketball.
  • You mentioned just about anyone can use the device – so I could use it?  To monitor friends and neighbors?
  • So does the device tell you exactly what is wrong?  Like “You have XYZ and should not play Basketball”?
  • So what is your recommendation if people have kids who just started high school or college sports coming up?

00:0000:00


Mike Carlin, who leads the CPR & AED training division of AED Superstore, the largest reseller of AEDs and associated service in the world joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health, Emergency Care & Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Mike Carlin discuss the following:

  • We constantly hear about cholesterol, blood pressure, heart attacks, is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) common and is it something the general public should be concerned about?
  • What exactly is the difference between a heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest?
  • How does one know if someone is suffering from sudden cardiac arrest and what do we do? Does one call 911 and just wait?
  • So I give someone CPR and try to use an AED but the person doesn’t make it. Am I responsible? Can I be sued for trying to help?
  • Are AEDs expensive and what kind of responsibility are we talking here? Do I just buy it and hang it on the wall?


Mike Carlin has been in the Fire/EMS field since 1996. He started as a junior firefighter and progressed through the ranks to Firefighter/Paramedic. In 1999 he became an American Heart Association and American Health and Safety CPR/AED Instructor. Mike continues to provide this service to the community and travels around the country for AED Superstore as an instructor as well. In 2013, Mike ended his career in EMS and joined AED Superstore where he is currently the Training Coordinator. Unable to stay away from the adrenaline rush of emergency response, he continues to give back to his community as a Lieutenant on his local fire department.


Hockey rules the Carlin household! Mike coaches, all three kids play, and his lovely wife is their biggest fan! Hockey does not leave much time for many additional activities, but in the limited spare time he does have, Mike likes to fish, snowmobile, boat, camp, and enjoy the company of family and friends around a nice campfire.

Michael Mooney, Director of Science and Education, Co-founder


Michael Mooney’s voracious appetite for nutritional science began in 1967, when he reversed his “sugar-kid” brain problems by abandoning the standard American diet, taking high-potency niacin and other vitamins and seeking out natural and organic foods in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.


Mentored by his biochemist father, Patrick Mooney, Michael learned to research nutritional science and became a “world authority, according to Sports Illustrated.” In 1973, they created a not-for-profit vitamin research co-op that led to the development of SuperNutrition anti-aging potency supplements. Together, they were early pioneers in nutrition, creating the world’s first gluten-free, hypoallergenic, science-based, full potency multivitamins that were also the first multivitamins that contained no fillers. They founded SuperNutrition in 1977 to bring their cutting-edge anti-aging potency multivitamins to the public.


About Super Nutrition


Founded in 1977 by Patrick Mooney and son, Michael Mooney, SuperNutrition is a California-based family business. SuperNutrition¹s mission is to build a better world through better nutrition. Each of Super Nutrition¹s products is made by combining science-based optimal potencies of essential vitamins, minerals, herbs, and antioxidants to maintain optimal health at the cellular level.
