A patient in cardiac arrest only has 600 seconds before death become irreversible.
The life-saving potential of a Telephone CPR program is stronger than any other clinical intervention in managing out of hospital cardiac arrest.
With an estimated 350,000 OHCA events annually, each presenting a 10-minute window for survival, telecommunicators are the critical first, first responders in the chain of survival.
The good news is, you don’t have to solve this for your PSAP on your own.
