According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Each year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year–that’s 1 in every 4 deaths, with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) being the most common type of heart disease, killing over 370,000 people annually.
70 percent of the cardiac arrests which occur out-of-hospital, occur in the person’s home. Only 46 percent of all out-of-hospital cardiac arrests receive the immediate help before EMS arrives. Quick activation of the EMS system and immediate CPR within the first few minutes, can potentially double or triple the chance of survival.
Unfortunately near 90 percent of the out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. If you are called on to perform CPR, you may be saving the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.
