Citizen CPR Foundation is dedicated to saving more lives from Sudden Cardiac Arrest by increasing the number of lay responders trained in CPR and how to use AEDs.

As a group we are transforming:
Vinay M. Nadkarni, MD
“Seventy percent of sudden cardiac deaths happen to someone you know and love in or near your home. By recognizing the signs of SCA, calling 9-1-1, and starting CPR, citizens and family can save those who would otherwise die without immediate help. In celebration of CPR Week, learn CPR and how to use an AED. Get trained and be prepared to save a life!”
Tom P. Aufderheide, MD
Past President, Member NCAC
“Citizen CPR Foundation is proud to support the work of the National Cardiac Arrest Collaborative. The mission of encouraging the education of what to do in a cardiac emergency is imperative for all citizens. Especially during CPR week, we stand with the NCAC in asking you to learn CPR, learn how to use an AED and you might be the next person to save a life.”
The goal of the collaborative (NCAC) is to unify the cardiac arrest field, identify common goals, and build momentum within the field to improve survival from cardiac arrest. Ultimately, the goal is to change the current culture of inaction into a culture of action by encouraging the lay public to perform CPR.
The Citizen CPR Foundation’s ECCU conference is our capstone event, hosting experts in CPR and SCA science, education and training. Students, practitioners and survivors convene to share knowledge and best practices to improve survival rates.
“Words cannot express my gratitude. Every second counts, and they knew exactly what to do.”
Planning an in-hospital strategy for resuscitation not only increases survival rates but provides researchers with information to update guidelines for CPR. We are all working towards better outcomes, updated science has proven to save more lives!
