Imagine you're at the airport, waiting for a plane, dining at your favorite restaurant, or sitting in your office. Suddenly, the person sitting next to you suddenly slumps over. You decide to take action and check on the person, but he or she won't respond to you. What should you do?
Call 9-1-1 or the emergency assistance phone number in your area. This is the first link in the Chain of Survival, a four-step intervention process which, if followed quickly and efficiently, can help save the lives of victims of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
Presently, SCA claims over 350,000 lives yearly in the U.S. and is the leading cause of death in most countries thoughout the world, but a strong Chain of Survival could dramatically reduce this number. When each link in the Chain is effective, an estimated 40,000 lives anually could be saved.
