The HeartRescue Project is a collaborative effort to increase sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) survival rates.
SCA is among the leading killers of Americans, claiming an estimated 350,000 people each year. More people die of sudden cardiac arrest than breast, lung, colon, and prostate cancer combined. More than 90 percent of people who experience SCA die, representing a national survival rate that has not significantly changed in more than 30 years.
Together, we can save more lives. Learn how you can help.
