More than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur every year in the United States and 7 in 10 people in America say they feel powerless to act in the face of a cardiac emergency.
 
As a result, less than half of all people who need this lifesaving skill receive CPR from bystanders before professional help arrives.
 
This CPR and AED Awareness Week, the American Heart Association is challenging everyone to join the Nation of Lifesavers and commit to make CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) awareness and education a permanent fixture in all communities across the country.


Joining the Nation of Lifesavers is easier than ever with many learning options!
