Frequently Asked Questions

First Aid Resource Center

1.WHY LEARN CPR?
Cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time.

  • 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home.
  • Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors.
  • Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack.
    • Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating.
    • A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle is blocked. A heart attack may cause cardiac arrest.
    • Failure to act in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths.
    • Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander.
    • Sadly, less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive
