The exact schedule that Mathieu figured to be on was always a bit unclear, as every player is different with regards to how quickly they can return to the field after an injury like the one he suffered. However, in an AZCardinals.com video series titled, “Tenacious,” fans are given an inside look at what the 21-year-old is going through. In the latest episode, which was released on March 19 and is the third in the series, Cardinals assistant trainer Chad Cook said Mathieu was moving into the next phase of his rehab.“Now we’re transitioning into that phase of just working on his range of motion, getting that full range of motion back, getting his strength back,” he said. In the video, Mathieu said there are some days where he feels better than others, which is to be expected when going through something like this. But his progression, and that’s the most important thing.“To see the progression over the last couple weeks, it’s been amazing,” Cook said, pointing to some of what Mathieu is now able to do that he couldn’t before, like wall squats. “He’s making tremendous strides.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Late in a Week 14 game home game against the St. Louis Rams, Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu tore his ACL in his left knee returning a kick. It was a crushing blow to the team’s secondary, forcing the star rookie to miss the final three games in what was otherwise a storybook season.Since then Mathieu has had surgery and begun the rehabilitation process, and while his story may have added a chapter he was hoping to avoid, it appears he’s ready to keep writing. Of course, Mathieu still has a long way to go before he’ll be back on the field, and what kind of player he’ll be upon his return remains a question. But if he is ahead of schedule as Keim says, we may find out soon enough.Your browser does not support iframes.

Without a shock button to press, rescuers armed with fully automatic AEDs avoid hesitation or delays for therapy since the AED makes the determination when to shock, not the rescuer. This pioneering technology was first developed for public access defibrillators by Cardiac Science. Fully auto functionality, combined with the company’s patented Rescue Ready® daily self-testing technology and optional Intellisense™ CPR feedback, are the primary drivers fueling AED deployments.AED deployments are becoming more widespread because of the growing awareness that SCA deaths can be preventable. SCA, an abrupt loss of heart function that causes blood to stop flowing to the brain and other vital organs and which is characterized by the victim suddenly collapsing, can occur among people of all ages and is often fatal if not treated within minutes of onset. Sadly, SCA continues to leave a deadly imprint on Canada, striking more than 40,000 people a year, according to the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation.Over eight in 10 SCA events occur in public places or at the home, yet only one in 10 victims survive an SCA event that happens outside of a hospital. The chance of surviving a cardiac arrest doubles when early CPR is used in combination with an AED in the first few minutes. This is why having an AED present during an SCA event is so critical.last_img read more
