New Money For Cardiac Care Effort In Dakotas



Bookmark and Share

South Dakota hospitals and ambulance services are getting new lifesaving equipment to increase survival rates in cases of sudden cardiac arrest.
   
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the Helmsley Charitable Trust is providing $3.7 million to buy the automated chest compression equipment, the LUCAS 2 Chest Compression System. He says the grant will place the devices in every hospital and ambulance service in the state.
   
North Dakota is getting a similar grant.
   
Walter Panzirer of the Helmsley Charitable Trust says South Dakota and North Dakota will be the first states to have the devices border to border.
   
The trust recently announced money to pay for research into unmet health care services and needs in South Dakota. The trust was established by the late hotel and real estate baroness Leona Helmsley.
