Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Urges Colleges to Ensure Campuses Are Prepared to Prevent Unexpected Cardiac Death Among Students, Faculty, and Visitors

Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the U.S., affecting about 1,000 people each day, including college students, faculty and visitors. Survival rates could increase from 8 to 38% if more people understood the need for immediate bystander intervention with CPR and user-friendly automated external defibrillators. Colleges are microcosms of the community at large. It's time to plan for sudden cardiac emergencies that can happen to anyone, of any age, in any setting--including college campuses. Learn more at
