CARES can make a difference. CARES helps communities measure performance and identify how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. By joining CARES, communities gain more than just access

treatment and saves countless lives for years to come.

Quality Improvement (QI) is the intentional process of making system-level changes in clinical processes with a continuous reassessment to improve the delivery of a product. In Emergency Medical Services, this product is essentially the delivery of high-quality prehospital care.
EMS agencies across the country rose to the challenge, using 110-bpm songs to teach bystanders how to do CPR and maintain the ideal rate for chest compressions. From "Baby Shark" to the "Rocky" theme song, every music video offered potentially lifesaving information in a fun and entertaining way. Ho
