Improving outcomes after cardiac arrest.
Every year, approximately 600,000 seemingly healthy people collapse when their hearts stop working, often without warning. Many die because of inadequate care.
Rethinking responses to cardiac arrest.
Survival rates have barely moved in 50 years. We can do better! Take Heart America sites have nearly tripled survival rates with improved brain function after cardiac arrest.
We partner with communities to change behaviors and implement leading strategies. Our nonprofit unites citizens, students, community leaders, first responders, emergency medical professionals, nurses, doctors, hospitals, other nonprofits focused on cardiac arrest, and innovators in industry and science. Together, we proactively save lives and make communities safer.
