The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation recently published some attention-grabbing statistics:
There are more than 356,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) annually in the U.S., nearly 90% of them fatal.
73.9% of OHCA in adults are in a home, 15.1% are in a public setting and 10.9% are in a nursing home.
87.5% of OHCA in children are in a home and 12.2% are in a public place.
If this does not convince you to learn CPR, I do not know what will.
In 60 to 90 minutes you can learn (and get a 2 year certification) a life-saving skill.
