Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States and 88% of sudden cardiac arrests occur at home. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by 7-10 percent. That's why it's important that we all learn how easy---and critical---it is to take action. You might be surprised to learn that we can teach Pennsylvania's students CPR and what to do in an emergency in just one class period. You can help ensure that this generation of students becomes the next generation of life savers.
