    It's not new information, but it's a good reminder and easy to do. Many of us will never need to use this but knowing how will certainly be good to know in case you ever do need it.

    Excellent information! Did not know about it.

    That was also a blast from the past - Anne was a TV news anchor in KC when I was in high school circa 1980.

    Amazing how long it has taken to get to this point.

    We have an over under at work that they get rid of BLS in the next 10 years completely. Shock or walk away will be the likely result.

    Just so nobody gets offended. The approximate one year survival for a person for whom a code (this is a code situation) is called on in a hospital is between 0 and 1% but closer to 0%.
    There are 350,000 cardiac arrests outside of the hospital setting in the US annually.

    Did not know the 1 year survival rate was so poor. Wow.

    Been thinking about it, I know probably a dozen folks myself walking around after coding in a hospital.
    Mostly coded from trauma, not heart issues tho. All work related knowledge of course.

    H20- just curious where you got your numbers ? Yes I see the 350000 out of hospital arrest stated by the AHA but your survivability rates post 1 yr CPR seem off to me. Not disagreeing that there are low survivability rates in the United States as a whole but there are many factors that effect survivability of someone who has "coded". Ex- cardiac vs trauma, initial cardiac rhythm, down time, how long till cpr is performed etc.
    The reason cpr has gone hands only is they still see people not wanting to do it because people don't want to give respirations to a " down" stranger. In addition to the fact that, that person should have some oxygen in their blood until a bls or als airway is established by a responder. My personal thought on it is even if someone does die within that year at least they can say goodbye to their loved ones possibly. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9044496
