What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) affects tens of thousands of children and young adults each year. For most, sudden cardiac arrest will end in death, but it does not have to be this way. Sudden cardiac arrest is a preventable condition. Most children and young adults are unaware that they are at risk for SCA, but Cardiac on Campus understands the danger. Cardiac on Campus was founded in 2015 after the passing of Jon Derynda, a healthy 20-year-old student, from sudden cardiac arrest. By providing the public with the tools they need to help in an emergency situation and prevent their chances of ever having a sudden cardiac arrest, Cardiac on Campus is making its community safer for all.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

CPR Certifications

Cardiac on Campus hosts CPR-BLS certifications to the Madison community for free and uses the American Heart Association curriculum. These classes are taught by Cardiac on Campus's certified CPR instructors (who are also undergraduate students) that are trained by the American Heart Association. Classes cover adult CPR, child CPR, infant CPR, automatic external defibrillator (AED) usage, and choking response techniques.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Young adults

Cardiac on Campus offers free electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings to University of Wisconsin-Madison students and community members. ECG screenings detect underlying heart conditions that could put an individual at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiac on Campus utilizes Who We Play For, Inc.'s team of cardiologists and electrophysiologists to interpret the scans. All screenings are performed by trained volunteers and overseen by individuals with medical training.

Population(s) Served

Cardiac on Campus operates at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where not every campus building has an automatic external defibrillator (AED). To correct this, Cardiac on Campus donates AEDs to campus through grassroots fundraising. Cardiac on Campus purchases the devices, and UW Fire & Safety maintain them. AEDs are crucial to a victim's chances of survival. For every minute that an AED intervention is delayed, an individual's chances of survival decrease by ten percent. To see a map of all of the AEDs that Cardiac on Campus has placed, visit the following site: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1_xYQ6jUT0iWENPDXXkzyN_QOr_WRagw&usp=sharing.
