According to the statistics from the American Heart Association, there are more than 356,000 patients of cardiac arrest who are out-of-hospital patients. Despite important advances in research and prevention, nearly 90% of all these out-of-hospital cardiac arrests lead to death.
The major treatment goal of sudden cardiac arrest is to maintain proper blood flow to the heart and brain so that there are proper blood supply and minimum effects on the brain due to no or less perfusion. High quality CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is the primary vehicle in which trained bystanders can provide perfusion until medical service professionals arrive to administer advanced life saving techniques. The odds are greatly improved of a person experiencing cardiac arrest when CPR is administered effectively.
