Q: What is the average age of people suffering a cardiac arrest?
A: Many people have a perception that sudden cardiac arrest primarily afflicts male senior citizens. The reality is that cardiac arrest strikes both men and women. While the average victim is about 65-years old, many are much younger - sometimes even in their 30s and 40s.

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in North America. Most people are unaware of the fact that the current survival rate from cardiac arrest is only 5-8 %.
