Medtronic Foundation Launches Heart Rescue Project

The Medtronic Foundation announced today a $15 million commitment to reduce sudden cardiac arrest deaths in the United States. The HeartRescue Project assembles the country’s leading emergency and resuscitation experts to expand successful city and county sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) response programs to statewide levels. The goal is to improve outofhospital cardiac arrest survival rates by at least 50 percent in five years within pilot states.

HeartRescue Partners at the Universities of Arizona, Duke, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Washington, and their partner agencies, will for the first time at the state level coordinate proven protocols and hightech treatments along three critical levels of response: bystanders, emergency medical services and hospitals.

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Founation is one of several patient associations that will be working with the project partners.

SCA Survival: A Wicked Problem

Rates of survival from sudden cardiac arrest have languished for decades, despite 40 years of exhaustive efforts to improve the situation, according to Larry Starr, PhD, and Allan Braslow, PhD, in an article published today at JEMS Online. Starr and Braslow are spearheading a Special Task Force on Reshaping the System of Survival through the University of Pennsylvania Organizational Dynamics program. They say SCA survival is a "wicked problem" that cannot be solved without considering the complexities of human behavior and organizational systems. 

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.
