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.

Early bystander CPR rates are low due to psychological barriers of stress, fear, and doubt due to lack of training or experience.
