Depends: The probability of surviving cardiac arrest also depends on the availability of an aed(portable defibrillator) and the laws in your state pertaining to the use of aed's. The city of seattle has a 25% survival rate compared to the national average of around 5% survival due to readily available devices and user friendly laws.
