"Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death in the U.S.—and it is not the same as a heart attack," says Wisconsin Public Radio. Larry Meiller, host of WPR's The Larry Meiller Show, today interviewed Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation representatives Mary M. Newman, MS, President & CEO, and William J. Brady, MD, Board Member. They discussed SCA, how to prevent it, and how people can save a life by recognizing cardiac arrest, calling 911, and using CPR and AEDs.
Dr. Brady is the lead author of Lay Responder Care for an Adult with Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest, which was published in The New England Journal of Medicine in December, 2019. (See attachment.)
