Explanation of Sudden Cardiac Arrest:

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly stops beating. Blood no longer flows to the brain and other vital organs. SCA can be fatal if not treated within minutes.

SCA is a leading cause of death in the U.S. and the American Red Cross estimates 350,000 people to experience SCA in the coming year. Improved access to AEDs and training could potentially save 50,000 lives annually.

Time is of the essence when a person is experiencing an SCA, and emergency treatment with a defibrillator can be lifesaving. The Red Cross calculates that every minute defibrillation is delayed, the chance of survival is reduced approximately 10 percent.


Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) office of Rural Health Policy awarded Mercy Hospital Devils Lake an award for Rural Access to Emergency Devises grant. Under the leadership of Mercy Hospital-Devils Lake, the project includes 12 CHI Fargo Division facilities. The total estimated cost for the AED Collaborative project is $1,034,720 over the next three years. Of this, HRSA has awarded $198,061 in federal funds in the first year, with the remaining year one cost of $143,080 to be provided as a match from the CHI Fargo Region facilities. The award is for 12-month budget period with 2 additional allocations for the remaining two years, providing $595,920 of potential federal assistance over the three year period.
