The Citizen CPR Foundation Launches National Call to Action to Empower Citizens to Save Lives of Those with Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Date:12/2/2010

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Citizen CPR Foundation (CCPRF) with prestigious co-sponsor organizations and community members have a mission to save lives and treat sudden cardiac arrest by encouraging citizen and community action in 2011 and beyond. The non-profit organization is launching a national call to action at its upcoming Emergency Cardiovascular Care Update (ECCU) conference on December 7-11 in San Diego. The goal of the new awareness initiative is to educate and inspire over 2,000 resuscitation professionals, instructors, and community champions to strengthen the chain of survival by motivating everyday citizens to act quickly against the leading cause of death in America, Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

"To spotlight this national call to action, we are honoring 50 SCA survivors and the life saving citizens who took action to save their lives as part of our special ECCU Survivor Summit," said Tom P. Aufderheide, MD, President of CCPRF. "This is an amazing celebration of the power of citizen action, and provides a wonderful way to recognize the 50th Anniversary of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)," added Dr. Aufderheide.

SCA occurs when the heart suddenly stops beating and there is no blood flow to the brain or other vital organs. Every year, approximately 300,000 men, women and children in the United States die from SCA. Almost 80 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and many are witnessed by a family member. Generally, less than eight percent of victims survive. Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after SCA, can double or triple a victim's chance of survival. If the victim of SCA has an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation, defibrillation with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is required to stop the abnormal rhythm and allow the patient's normal heart rhythm to resume.
