Why we started “CPR it Works”…

Al and Debbie Medina

As Al and I reflect on when our son Daniel collapsed of a sudden cardiac arrest at home in our kitchen, we remind ourselves how grateful we are that within seconds of collapse, our son’s friend administered immediate quality bystander CPR.  That, followed with emergency medical treatment from our local paramedics and hospital, drastically increased Daniel’s chances of survival and we are so thankful that he is still with us today!

Almost 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.

What we learned through this traumatic event is that most sudden cardiac arrests occur at home — and the chances of survival WITHOUT immediate bystander CPR is frighteningly slim. This is why we are encouraging everyone to be aware of the importance of CPR and become prepared to one day possibly saving the life of a friend or family member.

Our website is a great place to begin equipping you with the knowledge and confidence needed to deal with a sudden cardiac arrest event.  We hope that you’ll take advantage of one of our free CPR training classes or a more in-depth CPR certification course and that you’ll be able to connect with us at one of our community events as we attempt to advocate, inspire, educate, and train for quality bystander CPR.

Sudden cardiac arrest kills more people than traffic accidents, handguns, house fires, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS combined - more than 350,000 each year in the US alone!

Be the Difference for Someone You Love

When a person has a cardiac arrest, survival depends on immediately getting CPR from someone nearby. Almost 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival.

If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend.

Chain of Survival

The 5 links in the adult Chain of Survival are:

  • Immediate RECOGNITION of cardiac arrest and ACTIVATION of 911 (the emergency response system)
  • Early CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compressions
  • Rapid DEFIBRILLATION
  • Effective ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT
  • Integrated POST-CARDIAC ARREST CARE

A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke and other emergencies.

In this 5-minute appearance on the Today Show, Dr. Oz demonstrates how easy and effective hands only CPR and the use of a public AED can be.

“Everyone in America today can learn how to do hands only CPR.”

    Debbie did an amazing job teaching our cub scouts all about CPR as well as AED’s and choking. Our scouts loved it and gained a greater knowledge and confidence of what to do in these situations.
