Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the U.S. It kills nearly 300,000 people each year.
That’s more than the total deaths for breast cancer, lung cancer, and HIV/AIDS combined.
During SCA, heart function stops abruptly and without warning.
When this occurs, the heart is no longer able to pump blood to the rest of the body.
In over 90% of victims, death occurs.
This is usually caused when the electrical impulses in the affected heart become rapid (ventricular tachycardia, or “VT”) or chaotic (ventricular fibrillation, or “VF”), or both.
These irregular heart rhythms are arrhythmias.
(unless CPR is provided)
4 Minutes: Brain damage begins
10-12 minutes: Chance of survival
is small unless CPR provided
5. Press down so you compress the chest at least 2 inches in adults and children and 1.5 inches in infants. One hundred times a minute or even a little faster is best
** Think “Staying Alive”**
6. If you're been trained in CPR, you can now open the airway with a head tilt and chin lift.
7. Pinch closed the nose of the victim. Take a normal breath, cover the victim's mouth with yours to create an airtight seal, and then give two, one-second breaths as you watch for the chest to rise.
8. Continue compressions and breaths -- 30 compressions, two breaths -- until help arrives.
When someone collapses from SCA, immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) are essential for any chance of recovery.
An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable device used to give an electric shock to the heart
It STOPS the heart so the pacemaker can restore the heart's normal rhythm during sudden cardiac arrest.
