woman calling 911 for collapsed man
When a person experiences cardiac arrest, CPR started by a bystander is a crucial component to their survival. When CPR begins prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, the person in cardiac arrest has a two to three-fold higher likelihood of survival.

Telephone CPR is an effective way to ensure that CPR is provided immediately by a bystander; this means that 911 callers would receive CPR instructions until EMS arrives. 
If you or a loved one has been affected by cardiac arrest, and Telephone CPR could - or did - help save a life, we'd love to hear from you!
