What do you know about Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a life-threatening emergency that occurs when the heart suddenly stops beating. It strikes people of all ages who may seem to be healthy, even children and teens. When SCA happens, the person collapses and doesn’t respond or breathe normally. They may gasp or shake as if having a seizure but this situation may last for early few (1 or 2) minutes. SCA leads to death in minutes if the person does not get help right away. Survival depends on people nearby calling EMS (1122/911/etc), starting CPR, and using an AED (if available) as soon as possible.

SCA is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Approximately 356,000 people of all ages experience EMS-assessed out-of-hospital non-traumatic SCA each year and nine out of 10 victims die. When bystanders intervene immediately by giving CPR, survival rates double or triple.

ARE RESCUE BREATHS NECESSARY DURING CPR?

WHAT IS RESCUE BREATHING?
Sometimes referred to as mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, rescue breathing is a technique used to force air into a person’s lungs. Rescue breathing is typically performed after a person has stopped breathing due to cardiac arrest or an airway obstruction.

Rescue breaths are usually given by exhaling into the mouth or nose of the victim. Whenever possible, barrier protection between the rescuer and the victim should be used.

But what does high-quality CPR entail? Are chest compressions enough? Are rescue breaths necessary during CPR?

These are the questions that are frequently asked and addressed in CPR classes

Rescue breathing with CPR mask

To help clear up the confusion, here’s how to understand and communicate the importance of rescue breaths to CPR students and the general public.

For certified lay providers, rescue breaths are critical to performing CPR. CPR training for certification with an authorized instructor should always be taught with rescue breaths to increase the chance of survival.

For the untrained lay provider, the option to perform compression-only CPR helps to eliminate hesitation or unwillingness to provide care. This also applies to a bystander who has limited personal protective equipment (PPE) or is unwilling to provide rescue breaths out of fear the person may have an infectious disease.

Find & share a location using Plus Codes

Plus Codes work similar to street addresses. They can help you get and use a simple digital address. They can also help you define a specific location for a conventional address. For example, you can identify different entrances to the same building.

You can use Plus Codes to identify a specific location to receive deliveries, access emergency and social services, or direct people to a location. Since the codes are simple, you can easily share them with others.

Plus Codes are based on latitude and longitude. They use a simple grid system and a set of 20 alphanumeric characters. The character list purposely excludes easy to confuse characters like “1” or “l.”

Here’s an example of a Plus Code: JJXX+HR8, Seattle.

1- On your Android phone or tablet, open Google Maps mobile web or the Google Maps app .
2- Find the location where you want to get a Plus Code. To drop a Pin at the location, touch and hold the screen.
3- At the bottom, tap the “Dropped pin” panel.
4- Find the Plus Code beside the Plus Code logo . For example: JJXX+HR8, Seattle.
5- To copy a location’s code, tap the Plus Code .
6- To share the location, paste the Plus Code into your email or messaging app, just as you would do for a traditional address.
