Good to Know:

  • Immediate CPR can double or even triple a person’s chances of survival.
  • Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States.
  • If a cardiac arrest happened to your loved one or a close friend, would you know how to perform life-saving CPR, which can double or even triple a victim's chance of survival?
  • Sudden cardiac arrest can happen on the football field, during a bike ride or while dropping off the kids for an after-school activity. Most people who suffer cardiac arrest do not survivor because those around them do not know how to perform this life-saving skill.

  • Only about 46 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives.
  • About 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die.
