CPR: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation
CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.
Every year, 475,000 people die from cardiac arrest in the United States. Big number. Bigger opportunity. With your help, we can bring that number down to zero.
Why Is CPR Important?
Keeping the blood flow active – even partially – extends the opportunity for a successful resuscitation once trained medical staff arrive on site.

In the US, overall survival for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) dropped by 14% in 2020 compared with 2019 (10.5% to 9.0%) and bystander CPR decreased by 2% (41.2% to 40.2%), according to the 2020 Annual Report presented by the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES).
COVID-19's impact on CPR practices in the US is reflected in the national dataset collected and presented in the report by CARES. The organization helps communities measure standard outcomes for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, allowing for local quality improvement and benchmarking capability to improve care and survival.
