CPR is the critical survival link that buys time between the first link (call 911) and
the third link (use the AED). The earlier you give CPR to a person in cardiac or
respiratory arrest, the greater their chance of survival. CPR keeps oxygenated
blood flowing to the brain and heart until defibrillation or other advanced care can restore
normal heart action. The North Tahoe Fire Protection District wants to promote the most
rapid possible defibrillation of victims of cardiac arrest. AED rescuers can provide
defibrillation within the first few minutes of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. This
dramatically increases the victim's chances of survival.
