Email

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota hospitals and ambulance services are getting new lifesaving equipment to increase survival rates in cases of sudden cardiac arrest.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says the Helmsley Charitable Trust is providing $3.7 million to buy the automated chest compression equipment, the LUCAS 2 Chest Compression System. He says the grant will place the devices in every hospital and ambulance service in the state.

North Dakota is getting a similar grant.
