Here’s a question for you. What does Denmark know about cardiac arrest that more people in the United States need to know and truly understand? The answer is cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR. According to the results of a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Denmark has improved survival rates by three times compared to just ten years ago. Get this, teens have to learn CPR in order to get a driver’s license. Even elementary students begin learning CPR. The new instructions are actually easier than ever because only “hands on” CPR is recommended. There is no mouth to mouth with alternating compressions on the chest. Bystanders to a cardiac arrest are the key to survival. The percentage of those arriving at a hospital alive in Denmark because of the increase in education has gone from just 8% to 22% thanks to the effort to improve quick reaction by someone who witnesses cardiac arrest. Amazingly, the percentage of patients who survived after thirty days also tripled and those living after one year also tripled. There have been improvements in how CPR is handled in America with some states requiring a CPR class before graduation but nothing like what is going on in Denmark. It’s time for Americans to realize the importance of CPR on a national basis. The life that is saved just might be yours or someone you love.Some Data on CPR
