Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. According to American Heart Association effective CPR, provided by a bystander in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can increase the chances of survival. A lot of people are afraid to do CPR for one reason or another. Don’t be afraid your actions could only help the person. Sign up for a Family & Friends CPR class to learn how you can save a life.
