Oct. 16 is European Restart a Heart Day, and the Atlético de Madrid Foundation has joined the initiative to raise awareness together with Proyecto Salvavidas, the Spanish social initiative that promotes a healthy lifestyle, learning cardiopulmonary resuscitation and providing public and private spaces with automated external defibrillators.
Our goalkeeper Antonio Adán, representing the first team, has joined Proyecto Salvavidas founder Rubén Campo to learn how to use automated external defibrillators.
"This is something most citizens should know, especially when we've been exercising. These devices have very clear instructions and are very easy to use, we should all know about it," our player said.
Campo claimed that Atleti was a club that heavily promoted its fans' health and wellbeing.
"Atlético de Madrid has always paid attention to the health and safety of its fans, promoting public access to early defibrillation. The Wanda Atlético de Madrid Training Complex and the Wanda Metropolitano, which is one of the world's safest stadiums, are good examples of this. The stadium has a state-of-the-art defibrillator network that allows for any cardiac emergency to be treated in less than five minutes," Conde said.
