Did you know that in the United States more than 300,000 people have cardiac arrests every year?
Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the heart is no longer able to pump blood effectively to the rest of the body.
Some signs of cardiac arrest include seeing a person suddenly collapse, losing consciousness and breathing stops.
The longer the body goes without circulation, the lower the chance of survival.
By immediately performing CPR, you are able to help the person’s blood keep circulating until trained professionals
arrive and more advanced tools can be used. Did know that the chance of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest increases
significantly, by more than double, when CPR is started early?
