Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States. More than 1,000 Rhode Islanders – mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters – will lose their lives to sudden cardiac arrest this year.
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. Bystander CPR can double or even triple survival rates from sudden cardiac arrest.
