It’s no secret that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every four deaths in the US is caused by heart disease.While there are many risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease, such as family history, smoking, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, one of the most significant risk factors is simply getting older. As we age, our risk for developing cardiovascular disease increases.
However, there are things we can do to reduce our risk of developing cardiovascular disease, or at least improve our chances of surviving if we do experience a heart attack or other cardiac event. One of the most important things we can do is learn CPR.
CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a lifesaving technique that can be used to restart a person’s heart and breathing if they experience a sudden cardiac arrest. While CPR is not always successful, it is estimated that it can double or triple a person’s chance of survival if it is administered immediately after a cardiac arrest.
Unfortunately, less than half of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survive. This is often because CPR is not performed or is not performed properly.
