Meet Chicagoland's Heart Start Lady
Is your family or facility prepared for Sudden Cardiac Arrest? Do you know Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. It kills twice as many people every year as colon, breast & prostate cancers combined.
Approximately 350,000 die !
But what exactly is SCA?
SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. This usually results from an electrical malfunction in the heart
that disrupts its pumping action. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. SCA usually causes death if it's not
treated within minutes.
Here is what you need to know.
Use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)and administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation
(CPR), or even just compressions to the
chest can improve the chances of survival.
AEDs have saved countless lives.
