In brief: CPR

less than 10% of people with cardiac arrest and CPR survive overall.
After 10 min of CPR survival is miniscule. Early CPR and defibrillation within less than 4-5min give the best outcomes. Las Vegas casinos with abundant automated defibrillators, trained staff and people watching on monitors have the fastest response and best results.
