October 16th Is World Restart a Heart Day

Today on October 16th, the first edition of World Restart a Heart is taking place to promote bystander CPR worldwide. This initiative, sponsored by the International Committee on Resuscitation and initially conceived by the European Resuscitation Council, focuses on Hands-Only CPR training and the importance of immediate action to help save more lives from cardiac arrest.

Global bystander CPR rates range from five to 80 percent. Research shows that CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
