In 2014, over 424,000 patients suffered an Out-of-Hospital-Cardiac-Arrest (OHCA). Of those initially treated by Emergency Medical Services, 10.6 percent survived. Of the bystander-witnessed cases in which high-quality CPR was initiated and individuals had a heart rhythm that could be treated effectively with an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), 31.4 percent survived. These statistics define the importance of learning Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the proper use of an AED.
