The American Heart Association's Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) is inspiring the world to save lives through a dynamic message of hope. As the authority in resuscitation science, research and training, we publish the official AHA Guidelines for CPR & ECC. We translate these Guidelines into the highest quality training materials, courses and programs in CPR, first aid and advanced emergency cardiovascular care for healthcare professionals, first responders, employees and the general public. Because saving lives is why.
