Globally, cardiac arrest claims more lives than colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, influenza, pneumonia, car accidents, HIV, firearms and house fires combined1. Surviving a cardiac arrest event is dependent on a strong system of care and uninterrupted, high-quality chest compressions are a vital part of a successful resuscitation. With the right tools in the hands of the right teams, we can save lives.
“If someone had told me about an 8-hour cardiac arrest, I wouldn’t have believed it. But this truly happened.”
