Lack of something else to do is not why athletes practice.

The wide range of survival rates for out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims demonstrates that some folks are doing the right things and some folks are not.

If you live in a house with one or more other people, their lives may well depend upon how practiced you are at responding to their sudden cardiac arrest. (I can hear some of you saying "Yeah. Sure. And what are the odds of that.?" Actually, each of us has a nigher-than-ten percent chance of seeing a family member, friend, or associate drop dead in front of our eyes. Also, keep in mind that 66% of all out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur in the home.)

So let's all get ready by practicing!

Everybody in the household needs to know how to recognize when someone has arrested. (They suddenly become non-responsive and they either stop breathing or they stop breathing normally. Not breathing normally can mean the longest darn exhale you've ever heard or just an occasional gasp.)

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.
