Cardiac arrest survival rates in North Carolina vary from as low as 5 percent to as high as 40 percent, depending on the location and circumstances. The national average survival rate for an out of hospital cardiac arrest is about 8 percent.
The AHA recently rearranged the long standing guidelines of CPR to focus less on mouth to mouth resuscitation and more on rapid chest compressions pumping more Adidas Men's Energy Boost blood to the brain, an action that even untrained and uncertified bystanders can take in an emergency.
Castelblanco said it's too early to tell how much the new protocol will change survival rates for those who suffer from cardiac episodes, but the numbers say Mission must be doing something right.

"Studies have shown that only about 20 percent of people who are certified in the old CPR method will actually perform it when they're in an emergent situation," he said. "That's why it's so important that we simplify what we're asking bystanders to do."
But Castelblanco estimated the survival rate at Mission to be about 35 percent, a success he Human Race Nmd Red On Feet
attributes in large part to the hospital's diligent CPR training and educational programming.
"I think people are really just too afraid to do anything in a lot of instances, and they often hesitate to put their mouth on a stranger's, so they just freeze," Castelblanco said.

Castelblanco, a registered nurse and the director of cardiac emergencies with Mission Health, has helped initiate a series of programs educating the public on everything from heart healthy living to showing kids to call 911, and even teaching other health care providers to speak Spanish.

Fighting cardiac emergencies at Mission Hospital by day and teaching locals in Western North Carolina how to do it themselves by day and sometimes by night, Castelblanco has made it his life's work to turn around the typically dismal statistics about those who suffer from cardiac episodes in WNC.

That's why the American Heart Association has changed the ABCs of cardiopulmonary resuscitation to make more bystanders of cardiac emergencies become possible lifesavers. Hum the tune to the disco tune, "Stayin' Alive" to keep up the 100 beats per minute recommended for CPR compressions.
The process may have been simplified, but Mission's programming to teach it has exploded. Over the last year and a half, Castelblanco and his cardio team have taught nearly 12,000 people across WNC the compression only technique.
Every 25 seconds, an American will suffer a coronary event, and about every minute, someone will die from one. But according to the American Heart Association and results from local initiatives, survival rates are dramatically increased when bystanders know what to do and take action.
