Mickey S. Eisenberg, one of the nation’s foremost authorities and advocates of cardiac resuscitation, puts it, “For the first time in the million-plus years of human existence, we have the ability to reverse death. ”4 Not surprisingly, the development of CPR, defibrillators, coronary care units, 911 dispatchers, and EMTs occurred around the same time that the death rates from heart disease began to fall. 5 At the same time, the ability to resuscitate victims is limited—the vast Emergency Lifesaving Treatment 25 majority of those who go through CPR, defibrillation, and emergencyroom care die anyway.

Although stories of resuscitation occur throughout history, the effort to develop sound scientific methods began in the late eighteenth century. Organized in 1774 in London, the Royal Humane Society aimed to develop and publicize ways to resuscitate victims of drowning and sudden heart attacks.

The heart rhythm of the victim needs to be stabilized quickly, and the blood flow and breathing need to be restored. If resuscitated, about one-half of survivors of cardiac arrest live another four years or more. However, the longer the time between cardiac arrest and life support, the lower the chance of survival or the greater the chance of long-term harm among survivors. 8 In hospitals, the success rate in restarting a heart undergoing ventricular fibrillation reaches 95 percent because of the ability to begin emergency treatment immediately; outside the hospital, the success rate is much lower because of the delay in giving treatment.
