About 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur every year. Without immediate help, 90% of those victims will not survive. You can help improve those odds. CPR can double or triple a person’s chance of survival if started within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest. According to 2014 data, nearly 45% of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived when bystander CPR was administered.
