Frequently Asked Questions


If you see some collapse suddenly and they are not responsive or breathing normally, you want to Call-Push-Shock. This means you want to immediately call 911, begin hands-only CPR by pushing hard and fast on the center of their chest, and use an AED to restart their heart. Let’s say you didn’t see a person collapse, but you find someone who is unresponsive. In this case, you also want to immediately Call-Push-Shock. Victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest will sometimes gasp or shake as if having a seizure. This does not mean that they are breathing normally or responsive and you want to immediately Call-Push-Shock. If a person is not responding, don’t keep trying to wake them up – they will not and your fast response is critical for their survival. Learn more about how to Call-Push-Shock!
