Program: Len Agrusti presented on the critical importance of knowing how to administer CPR.  Over 383,000 cardiac arrests last year, 88% of which happened in the home.  Cardiac arrest is the result of electrical malfunctioning of the heart.  There is no pulse and no response.  Rarely any warning sign.  Differs from heart attack which is a blockage which usually comes with pain.  Heart attacks can result in cardiac arrest.
