Cardiac arrest – an electrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and disrupts the flow of blood to the brain, lungs and other organs – is a leading cause of death. Each year, more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital setting in the United States.
When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby. In fact, CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.
