Local business donates AED to Campus Middle School

On Nov. 13, Denver Pain Management donated an automated external defibrillator or AED to Campus Middle School. Dr. David Wright, his wife Carla and their son Max, who is a seventh-grader at Campus, presented the AED to Principal Enrique Rosales.

“We are grateful to Dr. Wright and Denver Pain Management for their generous donation of this life-saving device,” Rosales said. “We do everything we can to ensure the well-being of students, staff members and visitors in our school and this will help us in that important effort.”

When someone suffers cardiac arrest, or the abrupt loss of heart function, immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation with an AED can more than double the chance of survival.

This will be the second AED located at Campus, which is a large, two-level school of 175,743 square feet. Because of the size of the school, a second AED is valuable. According to the American Heart Association, the chances of survival decrease by 7 to 10 percent for every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation.

There are more than 100 AEDs in the Cherry Creek School District. Every school and support facility has at least one AED.
