"In one year along, 475,000 Americans die from a cardiac arrest."
"Approximately, 350,000 cardiac arrests happen outside of the hospital each year - and about 7 in 10 of those happen at home."
"Globally, cardiac arrest claims more lives than colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, influenza, pneumonia, auto accidents, HIV, firearms and house fires combined."
"In 2015, any-mention sudden cardiac arrest mortality in the US was 366,807. CPR, especially if administered immediately after cardiac arrest, can double or even triple a person's chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die."
"Unfortunately, only about 46% of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help they need before professional help arrives. The 2017 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics state that among the 356,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests that occurred, 46% received bystander CPR."
Statistics listed above are actual statements and accurate percentages
according to the American Heart Association.
