It is possible to prevent these sudden cardiac deaths if the affected receives immediate medical attention and CPR. The recent incidences of some celebrities collapsing suddenly and passing away due to a heart attack are eye-opening and shocking. There is an alarming rise in the number of young patients with heart attacks and sudden cardiac arrest.
In almost every family we have at least one member with heart disease. What if you can save a life in an emergency situation? Yes, it is possible if you are well-trained in CPR.
