70% of Americans don’t know what to do during a cardiac event, and there are over 300,000 of these emergencies annually.
Only 4 minutes after cardiac arrest is when brain damage begins to occur.
Emergency services usually take at least 4.5 minutes to arrive after you dial 911. Timing is essential when the brain is not receiving oxygen.
