Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC)
Each year, about 750,000 people in the U.S. have heart attacks. Of those, about 116,000 die. However, many of these patients experienced early symptoms. Learning how to identify the signs and symptoms of a heart attack could save someone's life and prevent significant heart damage.
Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) education teaches you to recognize the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack so you can become an active bystander and save a life - even if it’s yours. Download a copy of the EHAC guide here.
According to the American Heart Association, about 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.
Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective in the first few minutes as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public.
