Bystander CPR: The Time to Act is Now

A study just published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes (Audrey Blewer, MPH et al) reveals that male victims of sudden cardiac arrest had an increased likelihood of receiving CPR from bystanders (BCPR) in public settings, compared with females. An analysis of the Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium registry (n=19,331) indicates layperson BCPR was administered in 37 percent of events, males were more likely to receive BCPR, and males had a 23 percent increased odds of survival compared with females. The study is the first to identify gender disparities as a factor that affects survival.
