KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. – Three shoppers at Kravco Company Malls in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maine went into sudden cardiac arrest and were saved with the mall’s emergency oxygen and defibrillators.
The three separate life-saving incidents occurred at Montgomery Mall in Pennsylvania, Deptford Mall in New Jersey, and Bangor Mall in Maine. The ambulance and medics who responded to the scene attributed the oxygen to saving the lives of these three shoppers.
"The combination of oxygen and defibrillators are fundamental to saving lives. Especially the oxygen, since without it, the possibility of going into cardiac arrest is even greater," said Medical Director Dr. Peter Goldman. Once the shoppers went into cardiac arrest, the emergency oxygen sustained their lives while the defibrillator monitored their heartbeat.
Since the first week of December, Kravco mall employees used the oxygen 19 times for problems such as asthma attacks, a head injury, fainting and heart attack symptoms.
Kravco Company is the first major developer to provide emergency oxygen and AED units in all of its regional malls. The company’s malls include: King of Prussia Mall, King of Prussia, PA: Montgomery Mall, North Wales, PA; Oxford Valley Mall, Langhorne, PA; Lehigh Valley Mall, Whitehall, PA; Deptford Mall, Deptford, NJ; Hamilton Mall, Mays Landing, NJ; Quaker Bridge Mall, Lawrenceville, NJ; Concord Mall, Elkhart, IN; Bangor Mall, Bangor ME; Newburgh Mall, Newburgh, NY.
