AEDs to be Required in Ohio Schools, Rec Centers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Most school buildings and public recreation centers in Ohio will soon have automated external defibrillators installed.

That, once Governor DeWine signs a bill passed by the legislature.

In the Senate, the vote was unanimous.

In the case of sudden cardiac arrest, an AED delivers an electric shock so that the heart can return to its normal rhythm.
