Emergency Response CPR & AED Training Programs & Courses
FITCORE Teaches Lifesaving Skills in CPR, Basic First Aid & AED
- Approximately 350,000 cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur in the United States each year.
- About 5,900 children 18 years old and younger suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year.
- Less than 8% of those who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
- Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival.
- A victim’s best chance of survival will be immediate CPR and defibrillation within 3-5 minutes.
- CPR by itself does not save a lot of lives. CPR in conjunction with early defibrillation is what saves most lives.
Less than one-third of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims receive CPR.
When the unthinkable occurs, knowledge saves lives.
