CPR Statistics

 

Nearly 383,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually. 4 out of 5 of these occur at home.

Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help.
