Chain 2 of Survival
A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke and other emergencies.
Link 2: Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compressions
About 92 percent of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital, but statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim’s chance of survival.
