Automated External Defibrilators (AED):

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death resulting from an abrupt loss of heart function. Sudden death from cardiac arrest is a major health problem that has received much less publicity than heart attack. The American Heart Association (AHA) estimates that about 250,000 people die each year of coronary heart disease without ever being hospitalized. That's because about half of all deaths from heart disease - more than 680 Americans each day, are sudden deaths caused by cardiac arrest. The AHA also estimates that more than 50,000 of these lives could be saved if lifesaving Automated External Defibrillators (AED) were more widely available. An AED is a small user-friendly device that recognizes hearth rhythms and if necessary, will advise the user to deliver a shock in order to restore normal heart rhythm. The current national survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest is estimated at only five percent.

Houston - News Update

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? According to the respected rating firm J.D. Power and Associates it’s Houston Hobby, at least among this nation’s small airports.

Located on the near south side of the Bayou City, relatively close to the center of town and the Medical Center, HOU is a major focus airport for discount airline Southwest Airlines.

Discount airlines JetBlue, AirTran Airways, and ATA Airlines also fly into Hobby in lieu of far larger Bush Intercontinental (IAH) on the far northern reaches of Houston.

The discount airlines favor HOU because it’s compact, convenient, and flier-friendly especially now that a new airside (beyond security) addition to the terminal is complete.

Power asked survey participants to rate aerodromes based on eight criteria: airport accessibility, check-in/baggage check, security check, terminal facilities, food and beverage, retail services, baggage claim and immigration/customs control.
