PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CardioReady, a national leader in helping to prevent fatalities from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) through its turn-key solutions and training, announced today that it is expanding its CardioReady Certification offering to more comprehensively address on-course exposure for golf and country clubs across North America.
Serving a longstanding portfolio of clients ranging from golf clubs that have hosted numerous U.S. Open and PGA events to local public courses, CardioReady has broad experience and unique acumen in addressing the specialized needs of the golf community. The company is also a Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) Club Solutions preferred provider.
SCA is a leading cause of death in America, and incidents commonly occur on the golf course. To prepare for an SCA incident, golf clubs and courses are active adopters of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) programs, and the extension of the CardioReady Certification program will help CardioReady clients better protect their members and guests by improving safeguards in previously under-protected areas.
Stacey Wright, leader of CardioReady’s Fitness & Recreation Practice commented, “While we have always helped our clients to provide safety as broadly as possible, heightened recognition of the time-sensitive nature of SCA is leading courses and clubs to embrace superior protection. Overlaying input from our experts in medicine and emergency response with the nuances of golf club operations, CardioReady’s approach contemplates a range of factors, including environmental profile, topography, and course operational parameters. As a result, CardioReady’s Golf Course Certification program offers complete protection and peace of mind whether an SCA occurs in the clubhouse or anywhere on the course itself.”
Golf courses often have distinct barriers, including impassable terrain, water, and wooded areas, that can prevent the rapid response necessary to save an SCA victim. With a continually increasing public call for action and the likelihood of SCA events taking place in more remote course areas, CardioReady has elected to adapt its approach to address the growing needs of clients.
“In our opinion, merely placing AEDs in traditional locations such as clubhouses, pro shops, and halfway houses can leave certain areas with insufficient protection,” added John Ehinger, CEO CardioReady. “To serve our clients well, we have developed an approach that will provide a more uniform coverage framework across a wider footprint.”
