A fun little fact

People who go into cardiac arrest and still have electrical activity of the heart have a 90% survival rate IF the person receives prompt CPR and a shock from a defibrillator within 5 minutes of arrest. Without prompt CPR and defibrillation those odds drop dramatically by the time EMS arrives, and by the time the person gets to someone like me in the ER, odds drop to single digits.

So please get some CPR training folks! Learn some first aid while your at it.
