Improving outcomes after sudden cardiac arrest.
Sudden cardiac arrest happens when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops working. If CPR is not performed, neurological damage and death occurs within minutes.
Survival rates have barely improved in 50 years.
Take Heart America aims to dramatically increase survivability and neurological function. We partner with communities to change behaviors and implement leading technologies. Our nonprofit unites citizens, students, community leaders, paramedics, nurses, doctors and innovators in industry and science to save lives.
