At all ages, compared to other causes of sudden death, the chance of dying from Sudden Cardiac Arrest is higher.


Let's start with some benchmarks:

  • Your odds of dying in a fire this year are just 1 in 115,800 (still, most businesses and organizations have multiple fire extinguishers)

  • Your odds of dying from gunfire this year are 1 in 22,400 (still, guns are one of the most debated political topics)

  • Your odds of dying in a motor vehicle accident this year are 1 in 8,100 (still, we don't want our loved ones to ride in car without the latest safety features)

  • Your combined odds of dying from a fire, gunfire, or a motor vehicle crash are 1 in 5,700...
