If you suffer a cardiac arrest in Houston, will someone help you?
Currently, CPR is performed by a bystander like you and me only 36% of the time in the Houston area. CPR buys a victim of cardiac arrest more time until EMS gets there to help, and it can triple a victim’s chance of survival.
Join us in our CPR Anytime initiative, and help spread this lifesaving education, by donating towards the purchase of CPR Anytime kits to be placed in the Houston area. CPR Anytime is a CPR class in a box, and can teach the skills of CPR in just 22 minutes! The best part of CPR Anytime is that once someone uses our kit, they can then use it to train their family and friends. Each kit also comes in English and Spanish.
The American Heart Association has long been a leader in resuscitation science, publishing guidelines for CPR and emergency care for more than 40 years. With your help we can put our leading science to work by placing CPR Anytime kits in the hands of your community.
Twenty-five dollars can train an entire family, or more, in the life-saving skill of CPR.
Now teens have a fun way to learn the signs of cardiac arrest and the simple steps to save a life with the American Heart Association’s Be The Beat website, loaded with interactive games, music, videos, and chances to win cool prizes.
