Sudden Cardiac Arrest - Do You Know The Facts?

Do You Know The Facts?

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for an estimated 326,000 deaths each year—more than lung cancer, breast cancer and HIV/AIDS combined.1 It claims a life every two minutes.

Cardiac arrest happens suddenly; the heart unexpectedly and abruptly stops beating properly when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. This is typically caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation (VF) where the heart just quivers and cannot effectively pump blood. The only effective treatment for VF is an electrical shock administered by an automated external defibrillator (AED) followed by high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Sudden cardiac arrest is unpredictable and can strike anyone, anywhere, anytime. Learn the facts in this free download.
