Key to saving life is in your hands


There are effective resuscitation treatments and systems of care in place in Arizona to maximize survival. For example, 911 dispatchers are trained to help identify cardiac arrest and to guide you on performing chest compressions. EMS rescuers deliver high-performance CPR and transport patients to hospitals that deliver specialized post-cardiac arrest care. The net result of this coordinated system is a quadrupling of survival to hospital discharge in Arizona since 2004.
