Los programa de aprendizaje de la American Heart Association sobre reanimación cardipulmonar (RCP) y uso del desfibrilador externo automático (DEA) ayudan a aumentar las tasas de supervivencia, ya que entrenan a las personas como usted a responder con rapidez. La triste realidad es que la mayoría de las víctimas de paro cardíaco no sobreviven. El umbral de oportunidad para que una persone actúe antes de que sea demasiado tarde es de cuatro a seis minutos, pero menos de un tercio de las víctimas de paro cardíaco reciben RCP de las personas que están cerca.
