A cardiac emergency response plan is a written document that establishes specific steps to reduce death from cardiac arrest in school settings. A carefully orchestrated response to cardiac emergencies will reduce deaths in school settings, and ensure that chaos does not lead to an improper or no response. Preparation is the essential key to saving lives.

We use a Learning Health System (LHS) approach to increase survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) in Washtenaw and Livingston Counties, Michigan. We invite community members, OHCA survivors, family, and friends, first responders, health care providers, and anyone interested in improving OHCA survival in the region. Come JOIN US!

The OHCA Learning Health Community is a key partner in the University of Michigan's M-RISE Population Science Project. M-RISE is a three-project new research program, with the mission to discover, translate and implement innovative therapies focused on preventing brain damage caused by cardiac arrest.
