Only 10 percent of victims survive without CPR

Sudden Cardiac Arrest pie chart   Here is an interesting fact.  Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting more than 1,000 people each day. On average only 10 percent of victims survive, but survival rates jump to 40 percent when victims are treated with CPR and defibrillators.  This percentage increases even more when immediate help is received.   Everyone needs to get CPR trained.
