Cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Each year in the U.S., EMS treats nearly 300,000 people who suffer cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public locations. In the absense of immediate, effective CPR, the chance of survival decreases 7 to 10 percent per minute.

An individual's survival depends greatly on receiving CPR from someone nearby. However, less than one-third of cardiac arrest victims get this help. Most bystanders are worried they might do something wrong or make the situation worse.
