It has been estimated that if you placed all the books written about golf and golfers on a shelf, that shelf would have to be over 150 yards long, about the length of the 12th hole at Augusta National. But none of these books is more important than GOLFERS 911, the first time anyone has studied and made a well-thought-out plan for emergencies on the course.
GOLFERS 911 is the quintessential medical emergency guidebook for golfers designed to equip you to handle common emergencies that can occur on the course. Why no one has tackled this issue before is a mystery: golf courses are the fifth most common place for cardiac arrest according to the American Heart Foundation. And here’s a scary thought: 95% of cardiac arrests that happen on the golf course are fatal. Add to these stats the fact that 71% of rounds of golf are played by golfers over 40 and that roughly 750,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year and 75% are first time strokes and you can see the terrific value in this little book. Knowing what to do in an emergency can easily make the difference between life and death.
GOLFERS 911 was written by golfer Mason Delafield, an avid senior golfer who has shot his age every year since he turned 70, together with Dr. Ronald Brown, founder of the Carolina Healthspan Institute. Anyone who loves and has played golf knows the challenges the game presents, often a remote setting with unlimited hazards. Would you know what to do in an unexpected health crisis? Probably not. This invaluable book will help you and your playing partners’ chances of survival. It is packed with actions most of us are unfamiliar with, actions that can increase the victim’s comfort and even save a life.
Easy to follow chapters focus on fainting, CPR AED, choking, chest pain, snake bites, shortness of breath, insect bites, trauma, head injury bleeding, strokes and seizures. We recommend you carry this durable, laminated, waterproof 4”x 6” resource in your golf bag, gym bag, backpack, purse or glove compartment so you can always be ready to respond in a proactive way when faced with a medical emergency. Stop trying to save par and learn how to save a life: every page of this 64-page book will strengthen your ability to cope with a medical emergency.
