CPR And AED: The Chain Of Survival

According to the American Heart Association, effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim's chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. Less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
