Keep the Beat, Learn Hands-Only CPR
Cardiac arrest is when the heart stops beating. And it is more common than you think. It can happen to anyone at any time. Seven out of 10 cardiac arrests occur at a home or residence. Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors. About 10% of people who go into cardiac arrest at home or work do not survive. The impact on multicultural communities is great.
Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public. Visit heart.org/HandsOnlyCPR to learn more.
