As every year, our association puts on sale a Christmas Lottery number. With the double intention of distributing luck and contributing to the continuity of our association.
From this page, we encourage you to share your luck with us. Tickets can be obtained at our headquarters, located at: Calle Islas Cies No. 42. Ground floor. Las Fuentes Building CP 04720
One of the objectives that we have set ourselves, with the volunteering of our association, is continuous training. Apart from
Stimulating future volunteers … it is necessary to train within the organization. We have read an article in the local press, the content of which is most interesting, for us as volunteers of a
association of cardiac patients.
HEART: Experts believe that the implantation of defibrillators in public areas is a “priority”.
Every year there are more than 24,000 cardiac arrests in Spain. In a significant percentage of cases, these occur outside hospitals, a fundamental aspect since, at present, only one in 20 people survives sudden cardiac arrest when it occurs outside the hospital. Time is the greatest enemy of survival in these cases.
In, this sense, rapid access to defibrillation (the only effective intervention that exists to treat cardiac arrest) could increase the chances of survival in 3 out of 4 cases of sudden cardiac arrest. However, due to various factors, such as congested streets, remote workplaces, etc., many times it is not possible
Traditional emergency services reach victims in the first 10 minutes, so the survival rate around 5%.
On the other hand, the ignorance of the Spanish population about such An important health problem is worrisome, says Dr. Juan B. López Messa, president of the Spanish Council of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation. With the aim of establishing guidelines for the implantation and use of defibrillators in Spain, the Gaspar Casal Foundation, with the advice and supervision of the Spanish Council for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and the support of Philips, has carried out the study “The implantation of defibrillators in public areas”: protocols of use and recommendations.
I think the content of the article is self-explanatory. From Aencoal, as volunteers in an association For cardiac patients, we understand that we must be trained in this matter …, that they will even settle in public places in the future. Once duly trained in this matter, it would be convenient to provide our association with one of these devices, so useful and necessary…, to continue training as many people as possible. While waiting for your comments on this matter, I take the opportunity to send you a cordial greeting.
To my esteemed and respected president of the Diputación de Almería
I have read (as always); his opinion article in the Diario de Almería on Saturday, March 15, 2011. It begins: there is an old saying that “there is no harm that lasts a hundred years” etcetera, etcetera. Without doing an analysis of your writing .., if we believe from Aencoal .., what you think and write “There is no harm that one hundred years latest. Since you govern the destinies of the Almería Provincial Council; our Association feels totally discriminated against by you.
We have written (without answering); attended numerous times, interviews, with many of his many collaborators, and the result could not be more demoralizing and humiliating. Frankly, I would not like to make this message (which never answers) such a devastating criticism as the one used to disqualify the PP and Mr. Amat …, that is not my intention.
You should also take note of the popular wisdom “no one is a prophet in his land” as the story applies: we are in the Election Eve !; and the thousands of members of Aencoal We wonder! .., with what moral can we see in his promises, the light on the horizon, and, above all, how we can bet on his candidacy. I take this opportunity to send you a cordial greeting.
