Cardiac arrest is a common occurrence due to known and unknown cardiac diseases. “In one year alone, 475,000 Americans die from a cardiac arrest.” (America Heart Association). The American Heart Association works tirelessly to reach willing learners of the community.  The Association does this because “more than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of the hospital each year.” (American Heart Association) meaning, people need to know CPR more outside of the hospital rather than in it. “CPR, especially if administered immediately after cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die.” (American Heart Association). This person could easily be any of us. Bystander CPR saves countless lives, and teaching this to our school would show that we don’t only educate within the bounds of classroom education, but educate into the outside world, and CPR lasts a lifetime. “According to 2014 data, nearly 45 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest victims survived when bystander CPR was administered.” (American Heart Association). Even just knowing how to use an AED is crucial, some people are too afraid to use it, they are unaware that it talks them through the whole process!
