Among the 350,000 victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the US, they expect to see almost 37,800 survivors in the coming year. And if 40,000 survivors doesn’t seem spectacular to you, remember that it has almost double what they believe it was just a decade ago.

Thank you to AMR, ACEP, and IAFC for promoting this very valuable skill and encouraging others to learn it. 70,112 individuals were trained in bystander CPR based on this initiative! Inevitably, several of the people trained will use their knowledge to step up and help out in an actual Sudden Cardiac Arrest. We hear these stories often, and they are always astonishing.
Happy 10 Years!
