Did you know that eighty percent of all cardiac emergencies happen at home? Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of people over the age of 45, and is a risk factor in sudden cardiac arrest, which kills over 300,000 every year.
Knowing how to perform CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) are essential life skills, and can be the difference between life and death in a cardiac emergency. For every minute that passes between sudden cardiac arrest and defibrillation, survival rate decreases 7% to 10%.
