Cardiac Arrest Occurrence By LocationSMD
Let’s talk about cardiac arrest occurrence by location. A low estimate says that approximately 80% of cardiac arrest happens outside of a hospital (some references state even higher percentages). That means 4 out of every 5 times when someone’s heart stops beating, this occurs in a home, care facility, in public, or elsewhere not surrounded by medical personnel.
With first responders minutes away, bystander CPR and AED use becomes the single most important thing that can be done to help someone in cardiac arrest. With proper training, you can learn how to identify and begin to treat cardiac arrest before paramedics arrive to give the victim the best chance of survival. Let us show you how.
