CPR Instruction Using Cell Phones Effective

People who received detailed audio instructions on how to
perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) demonstrated better compression
rate, hand placement and compression depth than those who did not receive
recorded instructions by cell phone. The results of the study are published
today online in Annals of Emergency Medicine (“Cell Telephone Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation: Audio Instructions
When Needed by Lay Rescuers: A Randomized, Controlled Trial”).

National AED Advocate Succumbs to Sudden Death

Public access defibrillation advocate, Jack
Grogan, 73, collapsed at the San Jose International Airport on Sunday upon his
return from a trip to Washington, D.C. Bystanders immediately started CPR, and Grogan's son, Dale, who was there to meet his father, used a nearby automated external defibrillator (AED). Despite this and immediate response by airport emergency services, resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. 

Grogan had become active in national, state and local
initiatives to raise awareness about SCA following an earlier brush with death
in 2002 at the Chicago O’Hare Airport. This time, a passenger and flight
attendant revived him with CPR and use of an AED.

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.
