Why Learn CPR?

Over 300,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur every year, and over 80 percent of these occur at home.

Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack. Simply put, sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic causing the heart to suddenly stop beating. Whereas, a heart attack is caused by a blockage in the blood supply to part of the heart muscle. A heart attack may cause cardiac arrest.


Heart Attack Warning Signs

  • Chest Discomfort: Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body.
  • Shortness of breath

If you or a loved one experiences any one if these warnings signs immediately dial 9-1-1.
