Approximately 400,000 Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) each year - more than lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and AIDs combined.
Queen of the Valley Medical Center, in partnership with The Via Foundation, has created the Queen’s Heart Safe Program to help increase the survival rate from
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in Napa County.
The national SCA survival rate is only 10%. Comprehensive, public access AED programs can increase the SCA survival rate to 40% or higher.
The Queen's Heart Safe Program is a collaborative effort to increase the survival rate from SCA in our community by providing discounted Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and training, teaching CPR, and offering long-term program management solutions for businesses, organizations, and schools throughout Napa County.
