5Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in adults.
6CPR It is estimated that about 60 percent of heart attacks resulting in cardiac arrest occur in the presence of a witness who might be able to save the victim. About two-thirds of the deaths caused by cardiac arrest occur before victims can reach a hospital. CPR doubles a person’s chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.
7CPR CPR provides oxygenated blood to the brain and heart and keeps these organs alive until defibrillation shocks the heart back to a normal rhythm.
