Save lives? Isn't that what paramedics, doctors and emergency rooms are supposed to do?
Yes they are! But when it comes to sudden cardiac arrest, the difference between life and death is YOU. By providing CPR immediately – while the ambulance is on the way – you or any ordinary citizen can double or triple the chance of survival of a teammate, neighbor, congregation member, fellow diner, nearby shopper, spectator or family member.
