Attention-Getter: I think it is good for everybody to know CPR. It’s good for me, because I get to live.-Jeff Wilson
Bond: Link-to Audience:
Knowing CPR is very important to me for a number of reasons. It’s not only important because I am an Emergency Medical Technician but because it has affected me in my personal life. Today, November 11th is the birthday of my Aunt Jackie that passed away in 2006. The point of me bringing this up is the way she died. She died going into sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiac Arrest is the sudden abrupt loss of heart function (http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=4481). We don’t know what caused her going into cardiac arrest but I know that is someone was with her within the first 4 minutes of her going into cardiac arrest she might still be with me today. When the ambulance got to my Aunt’s house she was not breathing for about 15 minutes. The paramedics performed CPR but she was gone. The purpose of me telling you this important information today is vital to your life and the lives around you such as a brother, mom, cousin, father and even aunt. I wish I was with her in those vital seconds when she experienced cardiac arrest maybe I could have saved her life.
