CPR Introduction - Adult/Child/Infant  

There are 500,000 deaths in US related to new and recurring coronary (heart) attacks.  That means that every day 1,400 people die from a heart attack. Out of these 500,000, 80% die outside the hospital setting and do not receive any medical treatment after suffering heart attack.  If these patients received CPR, this would save 200,000 per year or 550 lives per day. 

These numbers are staggering, and prove beyond any doubt that knowing CPR techniques in case of heart attack usually means a difference between life and death for the victim. If CPR is administered within first four minutes after the heart attack, the chances for brain damage are virtually non existent.  If administered between 4 to 6 minutes, the brain damage is probable; 6 to 10 min brain damage is likely, and after 10 min. the chances of some type of brain damage are virtually certain.  So, knowledge of CPR does not only saves lives, but also allows victim to recover without sustaining any permanent damage.
