More than 300,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest each year in the U.S. alone. In most communities, fewer than eight in 100 survive. Three times that number could live with prompt bystander CPR, early defibrillation, advanced care by paramedics and use of special hospital units.

The ECC vision video lays out how we take the number of people who die from cardiac arrest each year in the United States – 475,000 – and get that number to zero. It’s a big number…and an even BIGGER OPPORTUNITY.
