CPR/AED Awareness Week 2022
The first week in June each year is recognized as National CPR & AED Awareness Week, spotlighting how lives can be saved if more Americans know CPR and how to use an AED. Every year in the United States 350,000+ people suffer from cardiac arrest and 89% do not survive. Chances of survival drop by 10% every minute without immediate CPR administration and the use of an AED. It is critical that more Americans get trained to perform CPR and learn how to operate an AED. Time is critical for recovery, CPR and early access to AEDs are the keys to survival.
If you come across someone unconscious and not breathing normally, you need to TAKE ACTION!
CALL. PUSH. SHOCK.
Here are the 6 key steps for providing high-quality CPR:
- Make sure the scene is safe
- Check breathing & responsiveness, if there is no breathing or gasping and the person is not responsive, start CPR
- Call 911! Call yourself if alone or have someone call for you
- PUSH! Start compressions right away
- When an AED arrives, deliver a shock if needed
- Continue CPR until EMT/ambulance arrives
