350,000 lives are effected by Sudden Cardiac Arrest every year. Compression-only CPR is easy to learn, and effective in helping save lives of these thankful patients.
Chances of survival rise from 10% in most places to up to 60% in places like Seattle and Casinos where survival is double or triple. Those in Seattle initiated widespread knowledge and quick utilization of Hands-only CPR, and the widespread placement of AED devices. In Casinos, chest compression is started immediately and an AED arrives within minutes to shock the heart back to normal. As we can see by these examples, starting hands-only CPR immediately has been shown triple the patients chances of making it to the hospital to receive medical attention that could potentially save their life.
