Did you know that anyone can learn CPR? This life saving technique is not just for people that work in the healthcare industry. In fact, out of the 326,000 reported cases of cardiac arrest yearly, 88% occur at home. That is 4 out of 5. This means that the person that you could save, is most likely a family member or neighbor. Keeping that in mind, only about 30% of the population have had some kind of CPR training. Administering early CPR in cardiac arrest cases can increase someone’s survival rate by double, even triple. Only about eight percent of victims who suffer cardiac arrests outside of a medical facility survive.
Transitions has joined in the vision with The American Heart Association, to educate individuals on the techniques of saving lives. Just remember anyone can learn CPR and increase the chances of survival and recovery of many.
