Wide Spread CPR Saves Life

CPR Select WideSpread CPR Training CARDIAC ARREST occurs when the heart stops beating It can result from health conditions such as a heart attack or from accidents like Saves Lives Potentially millions of lives can be saved each year if CPR guidelines are properly implemented drowning or electrocution. Most cardiac arrests, nearly 75% are due to conditions that don't respond to shocks Such Patients are more likely to survive if given CPR based on updated guidelines that emphasize chest compressions Patients' survival with good brain function increased from 3.4 % to 5.1 % CPR is a technique used to restore breathing and blood circulation Likelihood of survival to discharge from the hospital improved from 4.6 % to 6.8 % CPR involves chest compressions 1-year survival doubled from 27 % to 49 %. at least 5 cm deep and at a rate of at least 100 / minute in an effort to create artificial circulation by manually pumping blood through the heart. This Graph shows how Survival Rate of Patients 100 times 5 cm in King County, Washington Increased after introduction 2- 60 sec of New CPR Guidelines in 2005 2005-2010 AEDS are machines that automatically diagnose cardiac arrest and issue electric therapy to restart a normal heart rhythm. Patients who were treated with CPR or AED's by bystanders while awaiting emergency responders 4 times more survive 30 days than those who did not receive such assistance 4 times more A nationwide effort in Denmark to train people in CPR led to an increase in bystander CPR & ultimately increased cardiac arrest survival rates in Denmark The proportion of people who received bystander CPR increased from Increased 20% 3 availability of AEDS is likely to have an impact on survival 20% in 2001 to 44% 44% in 2010 Survival Return of spontaneous circulation No Bystander CPR (Ambulance CPR) No Bystander CPR (Ambulance CPR) Defibrillation within Defibrillation within 3-5 minutes 3-5 minutes 2% 30% 15% 75% Bystander Cardio- Witnessed In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest 22% Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Witnessed In-Hospital Cardiac pulmonary Resuscitation 40% Arrest 4% 48% Bystander Cardiocerebral Resuscitation Unwitnessed In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest 1% Bystander Cardiocerebral Resuscitation 40% Unwitnessed In-Hospital Cardiac Arrest 21% 6% * Compression only (cardiocerebral resuscitation) CPR is a technique that involves chest compression without artificial respiration Various studies suggest that in out-of-home cardiac arrest, bystanders, lay persons or family members attempt CPR in between 14% and 45% of the time, with a median of 32%. 22 ) »»: ) »> 18 1 9 >>> 6 >>> Of these 11 patients, Over a 2 year period, the Chicago Heart Start 18 were in an AED treatable cardiac arrhythmia (Vfib or Vtach) Of these 18 patients, 11 survived 6 were treated by good Samaritan bystanders with absolutely no previous training in AED use program treated 22 individuals w GPR Selec SOURCES http://newsroom.heartorg/pr/aha/guidelines-based-cpr-saves-more-231197.aspx Co-authors are Jeffrey D.
