This week is National CPR week. The American Heart Association offers many resources to learn more about CPR. When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately receiving CPR from someone nearby. According to the American Heart Association, about 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.Downloadable Information:Hands Only CPR 2 StepsHands Only CPR Fact SheetHands Only CPR Get Involved Click here to watch an informational video
