For Immediate Release - April 19, 2016 –  The Frankfort Fire Department will soon be putting new procedures in place which they feel will increase the quality of care for cardiac arrest patients according to Fire Chief Eddie Slone. 

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly, which is caused by arrhythmias, including abnormal or irregular heart rhythms.  When this occurs immediate attention is needed by starting CPR right away, using a defibrillator to shock the heart and establish a normal heart rhythm, and in many cases the administration of cardiac drugs.  Without these tools death can occur within minutes of a cardiac arrest.
