Effect of Bystander CPR Initiated by a Dispatch Center Following Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest on 30-Day Survival

Adjusted results from the French National Cardiac Arrest Registry

Cardiac arrest (CA) was considered irreversible until 1960, when basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was defined. CPR guidelines include early recognition of CA, rapid and effective CPR, effective defibrillation strategies and organized post-resuscitation to ensure a strengthening of the survival chain. Bystanders are the key to extremely early management, which is associated with the early medical care provided by EMS.

Is Physical Activity Always Good for the Heart?

Physical activity is thought to be our greatest ally in the fight against cardiovascular disease. But there may be significant variations in its protective effects across a range of different situations, such as regularly playing a sport, carrying heavy loads at work, or going for a walk with friends. These are the findings of a new study led by Inserm researcher Jean-Philippe Empana (U970 PARCC, Inserm/Université de Paris) in collaboration with Australian researchers. The results have been published in Hypertension.

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.
