Why Learn CPR?
Cardiac arrest are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time.
Over 35,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually, and 70% of cardiac arrest occur at home.
Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors.
Who Can You Save With CPR?
The life you save with CPR is most likely to be a loved one.
4 out of 5 cardiac arrests happen at home.
Statistically speaking, if called on to administer CPR in an emergency, the life you save is likely to be someone at home: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
Why Take Action?
Failure to act in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths.
Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victims chance of survival, but only 46% of those victims get CPR from a bystander.
Only about 10% of people who suffer a cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
