Latest AHA Statistics on Cardiac Arrest Survival Reveal Little Progress

The annual report indicates the incidence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in the U.S. remains high and survival remains low. Bystander intervention in the U.S. also remains low. In 2017, laypersons initiated CPR in 39% of cases, used AEDs in just 6% of cases, and delivered a shock in ~2% of cases, based on CARES data.

Call-Push-Shock Partners Urge the Public to Remember to Call, Push, and Shock When Sudden Cardiac Arrest Occurs

To help save more lives threatened by sudden cardiac arrest, Parent Heart Watch and the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, along with multiple partners, urge the public to learn CPR and how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED) during Heart Month this February.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a public health crisis— affecting more than 356,000 people outside hospitals each year, including over 7,000 youth under age 18—but death can be averted if people nearby act quickly. Today, only one in 10 victims survives, but with immediate CPR and use of an AED, survival rates can triple.
