Approximately 1,200 persons die each day in the United States from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) that occurs outside a hospital. Approximately 70% of these SCAs occur in the victim’s home. Since the introduction of the automated external defibrillator (AED), survival rates from out-of-hospital SCAs have significantly increased.
