Ryburn Motor Co. & Auto Dealers Donate “Resusci Anne” for Local Lifesaving Training

February 6th, 2014 by

imageDrew County hopes to train at least 30 citizens annually on what to do when a person has a  heart attack. The training program was greatly enhanced when the National Automobile Dealers  Charitable Foundation and the Arkansas Automobile Dealers Association presented a Resusci Anne training unit to the organization in formal ceremonies yesterday at Ryburn Motor Company.

In presenting the CPR unit, which is essential for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training, Bennie Ryburn, III, said, “If the right kind of treatment can be given a heart attack victim within seconds after he or she is stricken, the chances are good that the life can be saved. CPR  training teaches a person how to keep the heart beating while professional help is coming.  Ryburn said that since the massive involvement of Americans training in CPR, there has been an increase in long-tenn survivors from ventricular fibrillation. There are many cases where the training is given to citizens showing that many heart attack victims who otherwise die have been saved and returned to normal activities. The training takes from three to five hours of intensive practice and lectures.

In accepting the CPR training unit, Michael Frisby said the organization had set a goal least 30 persons in the next year. The CPR unit gives signals telling when the trainee is applying the right pressure in the right spot or breathing correctly into the victim’s mouth. With the training, the students learn the ‘feel’ of giving quick, lifesaving emergency treatment.

The National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation is part of the National Automobile Dealers Association with headquarters in McLean, Virginia. Its membership includes over 16,000 franchised new car and truck dealers in the U.S.
