Until Keeping the Beat: Raising Awareness About Sudden Cardiac Arrest Begins

Details

Join us on for a free interactive, engaging educational opportunity for individuals impacted by arrhythmias and the general public interested in heart health and preventing sudden cardiac arrest. All are welcome to join in raising awareness of sudden cardiac arrhythmias, including prevalence, incidence of associated conditions and response and treatment options.

Location: Wilder Foundation, 451 Lexington Pkwy N, St Paul, MN 55104
Date & Time: Saturday, October 28, 9:30am - 12:15pm

Sudden cardiac arrest can occur in individuals of all ages and without a prior diagnosis. Currently, about 9 in 10 people who have cardiac arrest outside the hospital die; but CPR can help improve those odds. If performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, CPR can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. Support our efforts to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and help save lives!
