Training saves lives

Are You Prepared?

When an indi­vid­ual is not breath­ing or is only occa­sion­al­ly gasp­ing, they are like­ly expe­ri­enc­ing car­diac arrest.

Sud­den Car­diac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart stops beat­ing, abrupt­ly and with­out warn­ing. When this occurs, blood stops flow­ing to the brain and oth­er vital organs. If a heart­beat is not restored, death fol­lows with­in minutes.

SCA is a lead­ing cause of death in the U.S., killing 325,000 adults in the U.S. each year. In fact, SCA claims one life every 90 sec­onds, tak­ing more lives each year than breast can­cer, lung can­cer or AIDS. SCA is respon­si­ble for half of all heart dis­ease relat­ed deaths.

SCA is the great­est cause of work­place death, killing 10,000 work­ers every year.
