Christmas is coming...

The perfect gift, for that hard-to-buy-for person!

Amazon is now selling home AEDs!!!

AEDs, or Automated External Defibrillators, are now available in a home model. AEDs are portable medical units that contain the equipment needed to shock a failing heart into rhythm, or at least attempt to do so. (CLEAR!!) You've probably noticed them at the malls and airports. There's been some movement to put them in all sports facilities as well, down to Little League fields.

But now you can get your very own, for home use. For a paltry $1,175 (on sale!), you're now prepared for whatever an ailing heart that walks into your house might deal you. Uncle Jim looking a little grey? Grandma moving a little slow? Dad complaining of chest pain?

And it even comes with a free gift: a thermometer. What's the thought process here? Now the AED can tell you that Aunt Bertha really has kicked it, and maybe the thermometer can tell you how long it's been?
