PRLog - Nov. 9, 2010 - DALLAS -- “In recognition of October being Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month, we wanted to provide even more help to our customers,” said Sophia Smith, the Marketing Manager for AHCA. “We're doing everything we can to encourage them to help save lives.”
More than 250,000 deaths occur every year due to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). In fact, SCA claims one life about every two minutes, taking more lives each year than AIDS, lung cancer or breast cancer. To decrease this heinous SCA death toll, it is important for the American public to understand what SCA is, what the signs and symptoms are, and how to respond and prevent SCA from occurring.
Part of SCA help and prevention comes from CPR/Automatic External Defibrillators training, which AHCA offers online. It's been proven that succesful use of AED can drastically enhance someone's chances of surviving an SCA. CPR, which is now celebrating its 50th year of use, has also saved countless lives through the simple application of the “hands-only”

“Teaching our customers in the way they learn best is important to us,” Ms. Smith said. “The 'How It Works' video is an important step forward in demonstrating the power of online CPR classes.”
