I’m back at work (sort of). I was just looking at Amazon.com to see how they handled bits of their shopping cart, and I noticed a banner for a Philips HeartStart Home Automated External Defibrillator. I am frickin’ SERIOUS.
Can’t you imagine it? Gran is having a really deep sleep in her chair after a big meal of Christmas turkey, and someone panics, assumes that she’s had a heart attack, and zaps her? You could seriously kill someone.
I found that very amusing.

lol…Phil just mailed this, from the review section:
I am alive today, in large part, thanks to the Philips HeartStart Defibrillator that was used on myself after I collapsed inside Victoria’s Secret at the mall last December. I was inside the changing room, and just as I finished squeezing into a leopard-skin bra and panties, the door suddenly opened, exposing my long-hidden secret for many to see. A kindly gent working security there was nice enough to hook me up to it after CPR failed to revive me. He had to shave a patch of hair from my chest and remove the bra in order to secure the pads to me. Once revived, I was forced to leave the mall in embarrassment. I’ll never forget the pointing women and children, nor the cat-calls from the men. Thanks to this kind security officer’s efforts and the Philips AED, I am alive today. While I do not blame the company, it’s a fact.
That is scarey. I’ve done 1st aid training and I am still worried about having to use it.A home Defibrillator though….that is a worry to me. How are you supposed to train for it. I’ve seen someone having a heart attack. I am glad there were trained medical personel there. It was quite frightening watching someone turn grey. I’m suprised they are able to sell them.
