A convenient and stress-free way to perform CPR.
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD)
250,000 deaths annually in the United States.
Most occur in people without known cardiovascular disease and 75% of events occur at home.
Cardiac arrest usually results from an electrical disturbance in the heart. It's not the same as a heart attack.
This medical emergency needs immediate CPR or use of a defibrillator. Hospital care includes drugs, an implantable device, or other procedures.
Chain of Survival is key to surviving cardiac arrest.
911 → CPR→ AED→ Ambulance
Early bystander CPR rates are low due to psychological barriers of stress, fear, and doubt due to lack of training or experience.

No flow to brain = No oxygen delivery
