The University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center Resuscitation Research Group is world-renowned for decades of research that led to new CPR guidelines that advocate chest-compression-only CPR, a method that doubles a person’s chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest. Equally important are their life-saving protocols for emergency responders and hospitals.

“Sudden cardiac arrest is responsible for an estimated 300,000 deaths each year in the United States—about one every minute. It is a major public health issue,” said Dr. Ewy, MD.

Learn about Sarver Heart Center's decades of research that approved abysmal survival rates and research now underway to further improve survival rates and quality of life for survivors or cardiac arrest.
