Facts about Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and why you need to know CPR
  1. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a problem with the heart's electrical impulses causing it to stop pumping blood. Nearly 400,000 American die from SCA each year. SCA is not a heart attack, or myocardial infarction (MI), which is when a blockage in a blood vessel interrupts the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart

  2. Most SCA victims have heart disease or other health problems however, they are often completely unaware of it. SCA is typically not a random event although it may occur in outwardly healthy people 

  3. Without oxygen, brain death in victims can occur within 4-6 minutes of SCA

  4. Without immediate CPR or use of an AED machine, over 90% of SCA victims die before reaching the hospital 

  5. The chance of death increases 7-12% for each minute that CPR is delayed

  6. According to the American Heart Association, only 32% of SCA victims receive bystander CPR before an EMT arrives due to fear or lack of proper training

  7. 70% of Americans feel helpless to act because they either have not been trained to administer CPR or their training is significantly out of date

Recognizing SCA is the first step in a successful rescue.  Providing immediate CPR can double or even triple the chance of survival.  Studies show that CPR given at onset and use of an AED machine within 3-5 minutes of cardiac arrest can increase the chance of  survival to as high as 90%
