Help Raise Awareness About Sudden Cardiac Arrest; Create a Short Video for a Chance to Win an AED

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation and the Citizen CPR Foundation are jointly conducting a video contest to raise awareness about the importance of bystander CPR and use of automated external defibrillators to save lives threatened by sudden cardiac arrest. Entries for the "ECCU 2012" Video Minute" Contest are due August 17. The winner will be announced at the Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update in Orlando on September 15.

YOU do the math...

[If you have an AED at home, you can skip this.]

The monthly total cost of ownership for an AED is on the range of $20-$30 over ten years, depending upon the model and how well you shop.

Two thirds of all cardiac arrests in the U.S.A. occur in the home.

Your odds of seeing a family member, friend, or acquaintance die of an out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest is 10% during your lifetime.

Your spouse has the same odds of seeing an arrest as you do. (That wasn't meant to be subtle.)

If you arrest and someone calls 911, starts CPR, and defibrillates you, your odds of getting out of the hospital with major brain function intact go way up. (The Phoenix airport averages 75% saves. The national average is less than 10%.)

And you can't find a dollar a day to greatly reduce your odds of a premature death or a terrible disability?

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.
