Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, train to keep others alive until first responders arrive on scene.
Automated external defibrillator, learn how to use these machines to stop an irregular heart beat and allow a normal rhythm to resume.
CPR doubles a person’s chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.
The typical victim of cardiac arrest is a man in his early 60’s and a woman in her late 60’s.
75% of all cardiac arrests happen in people’s homes.
CPR provides a trickle of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart and keeps these organs alive until defibrillation can shock the heart into a normal rhythm.
If CPR is started within 4 minutes of collapse and defibrillation provided within 10 minutes a person has a 40% chance of survival.
AED usage within the first three minutes of SCA can increase survival rates over 80%
4 out of 5 cardiac arrests (88%) occur at home, so it’s likely that if you know CPR and have access to an AED you may save the life of a loved one.
The sooner an AED is used the more likely it will work. A SCA victim losses 7-10% chance at survival for every minute after SCA that an AED is not used
Less than 8% of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside of a hospital will survive
AEDs are easy to use and can be used on both adults, infants, and children.
