Feel unprepared for a medical emergency? Thought of taking CPR but couldn’t find a class and location that fit your needs? Unsure about the safety of an instructor coming to you? CPR Champion has solutions for you.
Did you know that 70 percent of Americans feel unprepared to act during a cardiac emergency, either because they do not know cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or because they feel rusty because they haven’t taken a class in many years, according to the American Heart Association (AHA)? And while 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home, the survival rate of those who suffer home cardiac arrests is a mere eight percent. If the victim receives CPR, their chances of survival can double or triple and with the use of Automatic External Defibrillation (AED), the survival rate goes up to over 50 percent, according to the AHA.
These alarming statistics show the need to increase the public’s ability to perform high-quality CPR. And with the prevalence of AED machines in so many public areas, the tools are in place for bystanders to help. Feel prepared by learning CPR today!
