American Heart Association data show more than 350,000 EMS-assessed out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the U.S. PFA, in collaboration with several partner agencies, launched the free PulsePoint smartphone app in our community in 2015. This life-saving app alerts users when CPR is needed within a quarter of a mile of their current geographic location. Why? With sudden-cardiac events, such as a heart attack, every second counts. About 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. However, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.

Hands-only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public. It has two easy steps. 

Step 1 – Call 911 if you see a teen or adult collapse.

Step 2 – Push hard and fast in the center of their chest to the beat of a familiar song that has 100 to 120 beats per minute, such as “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees or “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce featuring J-Z.
