Bystander CPR: A Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survival Story

By Hannah Ostrem

According to the American Heart Association, only around half of Americans say that if they saw someone suffering from cardiac arrest, they would give CPR. Those who said they would not perform CPR gave reasons including:

  • Do not know how to perform CPR
  • Fear of doing harm
  • Fear of legal trouble
  • Assumption that someone else will come to the rescue

But the fact is that bystander CPR can — and does — save lives. Just ask Jennifer Piazza, whose 24-year-old husband, Shawn, had a sudden cardiac arrest in their home one afternoon. 

Luckily, Jennifer sprang into action, delivering life-saving chest compressions until help could arrive. Learn more about Jennifer and Shawn's story right here:
