3rd Thumper Donated to Lakewood Hatzolah

thumper hatzolah pic‎Hatzolah of Lakewood today took delivery of another Thumper, making it the third such device for the all-volunteer squad.

‎The Thumper is an approximately $15,000 device designed to deliver consistent CPR chest compressions without the off intervals, and to deliver direct current cardioversion during chest compressions, and is recommended by the American Heart Association. Another advantage of the device is, that it reduces the impact of extenuating circumstances on the interruption and quality of chest compressions, such as transport conditions, rescuer fatigue and rescuer experience level. ‎

The new device‎ was donated by a Lakewood resident who wishes to remain anonymous, a Hatzolah official told TLS.

The Thumper was placed at the Monmouth Avenue Hatzolah garage. The other devices are at the Royal and Heathwood garages.

Hatzolah of Lakewood received their first Thumper in 2010, making the squad the first volunteer squad in New Jersey to own a Thumper.
