Survivor's Network Austin
Many 2008 survivors experienced a new era with increased efforts to improve Survival from Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the City of Austin and Travis County. As one of four cities participating in the Take Heart America Sudden Cardiac Arrest Initiative, our Community implemented a number of proven approaches to resuscitation from sudden cardiac arrest. The Take Heart Austin initiative is now the primary sponsor of our Annual Survivor Celebration now known as the Take Heart Austin Survivor Celebration.
Survivor Austin reached a new milestone this year. 54 people survived Sudden Cardiac Arrest in our Communities. Efforts began last year to implement the 2005 American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. We want to increase our number of Survivors even more in the coming years.
