Leading resuscitation experts collaborate to improve SCA survival rates.
Initiated and funded by the Medtronic Foundation, the HeartRescue project is designed to improve how SCA is recognized, treated and measured in the United States.
What is the role of HeartRescue Partners?
The HeartRescue Project begins with a shared belief that SCA is a treatable condition. Working in select geographies, HeartRescue Partners and their partner agencies will work to improve SCA survival rates by expanding and replicating successful city and county out-of-hospital cardiac arrest response programs to statewide levels. Within their geographies, Partners will:
- Develop an integrated community response to SCA
- Coordinate public and professional education and training efforts
- Introduce and apply best-practice treatments to the general public, first responders (police/fire), emergency medical services (EMS) and hospitals
- Implement a common, systemic method of measuring performance and outcomes of SCA
