Cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States and the only tools currently available to combat cardiac arrest are CCR/CPR and a shock delivered from a defibrillator. Approximately half a million Americans experience cardiac arrest each year in this great country. The utilization of CCR/CPR and AEDs significantly increases the chances of survival. The Griffith Blue Heart team have done CCR/CPR and utilized AEDs countless times throughout their lives and can advocate based off first-hand experience both as a survivor and savers.
After someone experiences cardiac arrest, there are so many questions, feelings, and emotions that the survivor, their loved ones, co-workers, and friends are left with. It can be extremely challenging to find answers if any can be found, about their incident. Being able to speak with other survivors and their loved ones often brings comfort and insight to those new to cardiac arrest. The Griffith Blue Heart Team can guide, listen, and mentor others in the cardiac community by putting them in touch with fellow survivors and survivor organizations, education groups, and giving them the opportunity to help give back.
