Every second counts in cardiac arrest, which can strike at any time. Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States, and about 90 percent of these people die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival. This powerful video from the American Heart Association and Anthem Foundation shows how a bystander can perform Hands-Only CPR and be the difference for someone they love.
