Heart disease and stroke—the main components of
cardiovascular disease—are leading causes of death for both
men and women in the U.S and Canada (nearly 40%).
Everyone should know the signs and symptoms of heart attack
and stroke and the importance of calling 9-1-1 quickly. Family
members of victims who are at risk for heart attack should take
CPR training and be familiar with the use of an automated
external defibrillator (AED).
Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death
among adults in North America. When sudden cardiac arrest
occurs, most victims have an abnormal heart rhythm called
ventricular defibrillation.* Unless a shock is delivered to the
heart to restore the normal rhythm, brain death can occur within
minutes. This requires the use of an AED or rapid 9-1-1
response with EMT or paramedics providing defibrillation.
Effective CPR provides some circulation to the heart and brain
and “buys time” until defibrillation can occur or the underlying
cause of the arrest can be determined and addressed.

- Recognizing signs and symptoms of heart attack or
stroke and calling 9-1-1
