Sudden cardiac arrest affects about 1,000 people outside hospitals each day in the U.S. and only 10 percent survive. When bystanders provide CPR and use automated external defibrillators before EMS arrives, about 40 percent of victims survive. If the national survival rate increased to 40 percent, about 100,000 additional people could be saved each year. Read more. Sudden cardiac arrest is different from a heart attack. Understanding the difference could save your life–or the life of someone you love.
