- 70% of out of hospital cardiac arrests happen in the home.
- Doing chest compressions to the beat of the Bee Gees song, Staying Alive, until help arrives is the best way to help save someone’s life.
- Travelers who find themselves waiting on their flight can make the most out of delays by learning the lifesaving skill of Hands-Only CPR at eight interactive kiosks located at several airports nationwide
- Learning hands-only CPR can take only 90 seconds. Watch this video to learn!
- Prompt delivery of CPR can double or triple the victim’s chance of survival. For every minute without CPR, survival from witnessed cardiac arrest decreases about 10 percent. The time between the initial 9-1-1 telephone call and the arrival of emergency personnel may be longer than five minutes; therefore, a cardiac arrest victim’s survival is likely dependent on a bystander trained in CPR who takes action and who has access to a lifesaving AED
