Incidence of sudden cardiac arrest in the general population is 50 to 100 per 100,000.

Important Guidelines

  • Immediate recognition of sudden cardiac arrest by noting unresponsiveness or absent/gasping breathing (breathing that does not look normal) is key.
  • Health care professional rescuers should not take more than 10 seconds to check for a pulse.
  • Immediately initiate excellent cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); “push hard, push fast” (but not too hard nor too fast).
  • Minimize interruptions in CPR.
  • Single untrained rescuers should perform excellent chest compression-only or hands-only CPR.
  • Use an automated external defibrillator (AED) as soon as available
  • Patient survival depends mainly upon immediate initiation of excellent CPR and rapid defibrillation.
