Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation is working with universities and academic hospitals to promote studies that directly impact the well-being of survivors, families, and caregivers affected by sudden cardiac arrest.

A growing body of research indicates that a patient’s and their family member's recovery from sudden cardiac arrest continues long after initial hospitalization. Recent guidelines from the American Heart Association (AHA) recommend that cardiac arrest survivors and their caregivers receive comprehensive discharge plans to include medical and rehabilitative treatment recommendations and return to activity and work expectations. 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation has joined forces with resuscitation researchers to develop resources to improve the quality of life among survivors and their family members. We further seek to support families who have lost a loved one to sudden cardiac arrest.
