Infographic: The History of CPR

The History of CPR

Every year, 350,000 people die from cardiac arrest in the United States. It is estimated that as many as 90% of people who experience out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die before help arrives. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can change those numbers; if performed immediately, CPR can double or even triple the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest in the home (where 70% occur) or out in public.
