Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) provides chest compressions, but must be practiced according to the latest 2010 American Heart Association protocols, which can get confusing and overwhelming in the time of a cardiac emergency.

Did you know the number of people who die each year from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is roughly equivalent to the number who die from Alzheimers disease, assault with firearms, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, HIV, house fires, motor vehicle accidents, prostate cancer and suicides combined.
