The City of Phoenix has increased the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rate by 5 times!
This was possible through the implementation of leading-edge pre-hospital resuscitation protocols and the establishment of a hospital network of Cardiac Arrest Centers.
Though this is great news for The City of Phoenix, we hope to continually improve the quality of emergency care to our citizens.
The Sky Harbor International Airport has demonstrated a cardiac arrest survival rate of almost 80%! This is due to the great number of BLS/AED trained personnel and great number of automated external defibrillators available at the Sky Harbor. This life-saving emergency care at Sky Harbor serves as an example of what a community can accomplish with the appropriate resources.
The RightCare Foundation advocates for this best-practice emergency care in care homes/ facilities in Arizona.
Arguably seniors are more likely to experience sudden cardiac arrest than the average visitor to Sky Harbor International Airport.
The RightCare Foundation’s goal is to dramatically increase the rate of survival of seniors that experience sudden cardiac arrest in Arizona. “We intend to influence change requiring that the same emergency care that is available at our airport be available to consumers of senior care in our community”.
