If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend. 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests happen in private or residential settings. Yet, only 41 percent of people who experience a cardiac arrest at home, work or in public get the immediate help that they need before emergency help arrives.
Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for sudden cardiac arrest. It can double or even triple a victim’s chance of survival.
