If a family member, friend or infant in your care had a cardiac or first aid emergency in your presence, could you recognize the signs and respond quickly and appropriately? The American Heart Association has developed a variety of training kits and courses to teach you lifesaving skills.
Less than one-third of sudden cardiac arrest victims are administered immediate CPR from bystanders. Through a variety of programs, the American Heart Association is equipping people and communities to act in emergencies and ultimately save lives.
From iPhone apps to product support guides, from funding resources for community CPR programs to assessments of how effective such programs are locally, the American Heart Association provides tools that make communities stronger.
