The Importance of CPR
7/23/2012
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, also known as CPR, is a set of basic emergency skills designed to help save a person's life when her heart has stopped beating or she has stopped breathing. The American Heart Association, or AHA, emphasizes the importance of CPR by stating that CPR, performed in an effective and timely manner, can double a person's chance of survival.
The AHA states that, in the absence of CPR, a victim's chance of survival drops 7 to 10 percent for every minute that lapses between collapse and medical intervention. Every year, there are 294,851 cardiac arrests treated outside of the hospital in the United States. About 80 percent of all cardiac arrests that occur out of the hospital happen in homes, which emphasizes the importance of all capable individuals being trained to perform CPR.
