Three Little Letters That Could Make You A Big Hero At The Beach This Summer: CPR

New study shows that bystander CPR is associated with favorable neurological survival for drowning victims in cardiac arrest

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Imagine yourself relaxing at the beach when the worst happens -- someone notices a boy in trouble in the water. In the mad rush to get him to shore, you have two choices: wait for emergency responders to arrive or start administering CPR yourself.

Chances of Receiving CPR At Home Decreases With Age

Updated data from Penn Medicine CPR survey underscores training disparities among older adults

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- The likelihood of a family member or friend stepping in to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a person suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) at home decreases with the victim's age, suggests a new study from Penn Medicine that also found low CPR training rates among older Americans.

The results were published this week in the Journal of the American Heart Association.
