The Bangui, Vintar, Piddig, Dingras, and Marcos District Hospitals, Governor Roque B. Ablan Sr. Memorial Hospital, Provincial Health Office, and Provincial Resiliency Office each received one unit of AED on February 5, 2021.

To avoid cardiac arrest, AED is a portable medical device that is used to re-establish the heart’s effective rhythm.

Wala pa kasing ganitong equipment ang mga hospitals natin. Isa sa requirements kasi ng Department of Health sa paga-accredit ng licensed Patient Transport Vehicle ay ang AED,” Mr. Marcell N. Tabije, Local Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer, said. 

He further elaborated that these machines will improve the healthcare providers’ first aid and medical services in the province, which will save lives in emergencies.

Dr. Ruth Corpuz, Officer-in-Charge and Chief of the Doña Josefa Edralin Marcos District Hospital, extended her gratitude to the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN), saying, “We are very thankful that this AED has been donated to all district hospitals as well as to the GRBASMH since we need it in our ambulances.”Blessing Angel V. Agliam, PGIN-CMO
