Rotarian Lenny Nathan, President and Founder of HealthSav, a training center for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), discusses the need for public awareness about how to save a life when faced with someone who suddenly goes into cardiac arrest. Mr. Nathan describes the difference between a heart attack, when blood flow through the heart is blocked, and cardiac arrest, when the heart stops beating. He explains the reason why some cities (such as Seattle) can save up to 50% of people who go into sudden cardiac arrest when they are not in a hospital while other cities and towns, including those in New York State, save only about 4%. You can learn more surprising statistics and information about the heart in this fascinating interview.
