Think knowing CPR should be left to the professionals? Think again! Performing CPR in an emergency can literally save a life. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest. The longer the body goes without circulation, the lower the chance of survival is.
And even more convincing is that “according to 2014 data, nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived when bystander CPR was administered.”
Unfortunately, only about 46% of people who experience cardiac arrest (outside of a hospital) actually get the help they need before professional help arrives, meaning that more people need to be equipped to help. We can do something while paramedics are on their way.
That’s why we think every parent, grandparent, nanny, aunt, uncle, foster parent, babysitter, teacher and swim instructor should be CPR and First Aid Certified. You might feel overwhelmed at the idea of performing CPR but it’s fairly simple to learn and is easy to find a class.
Still not convinced? Did you know that most cardiac arrests occur in the home? Yep, more than 85 percent of cardiac arrests take place at home. Learning CPR could enable you to save your child’s, husband, or parent’s life. That’s a skill we want to know!
