Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), recently ranked Number One in the U.S. and Number Three in the world by the readers of Conde Naste Traveler Magazine, may now be one of the safest airports in the nation, thanks to its new public access defibrillation (PAD) program, announced June 11th.
PIT joins a small--but growing--number of international airports that have installed defibrillators and trained likely users, with the expectation that this will increase survival rates among victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
Experience from other airport PAD programs, such as the first such program, at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, suggests that even laypersons with no prior training have been able to use the devices successfully and help save lives.
