Would you know what to do if an adult suddenly collapses and is unresponsive?

The Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau of Emergency Medical Services & Trauma System and the University of Arizona want your answer to always be YES! That's why they have established the SHARE Program.

The SHARE Program promotes a comprehensive, standardized system of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest care throughout Arizona encompassing all "links" in the "chain of survival" – bystander response, emergency medical dispatcher CPR instruction, Emergency Medical Services provider resuscitation, and standardized care at hospitals. SHARE also seeks to support survivors of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest by providing them with helpful resources.

SHARE has partnered with many groups to collect and analyze data related to all aspects of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest care. We collect information on Hands-Only CPR training, Automated External Defibrillator (AED) uses, EMS response, and hospital treatments. Our partners include agencies and organizations within our state, as well as national groups such as the American Heart Association. Working together we promote evidence-based treatment and improve survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Please take a look at the information on this website to learn how you or your organization can respond to a sudden cardiac arrest emergency. You can help save lives. Together we can reach the ultimate goal of the SHARE Program:

For Arizona to have the best survival rate from cardiac emergencies in the world.
