CPR

According to the American Heart Association, 70% of American’s may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed.  Failure to act in a sudden cardiac emergency can lead to an unnecessary death and if effective CPR is given in a sudden cardiac arrest situation, it can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.  (CPR Statistics. (June 2011). Retrieved from http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/CPRAndECC/WhatisCPR/CPRFactsandStats/CPR-Statistics_UCM_307542_Article.jsp)
