The cast of the CBS hit series "Rules of Engagement" has teamed up with the American Heart Association to release a new digital video "Rules of Hands-Only CPR.".
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the US with only a 7-9% average survival rate. Bystander CPR can double or triple survival from cardiac arrest. Currently, only about 30 percent of victims of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest receive any type of CPR.
Experts agree that if more people knew how to provide effective, simple-to-apply Hands Only CPR, more victims could be helped instantly, doubling or even tripling their chances of survival.
