Chain of Survival in Adults (American Heart Association)

The term Chain of Survival provides a useful metaphor for performing effective CPR.

The 5 links in the adult Chain of Survival are;

• Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of 911 (Confirm unconsciousness and lack of breathing)

• Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compressions

• Rapid defibrillation with an AED (automatic external defibrillator)

• Effective advanced life support (Paramedic-level response)

• Integrated post-cardiac arrest care (Hospital treatment)

A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of heart attack, stroke and other emergencies.

Get involved and do bystander CPR before 911 resources arrive- you can save a life!
