More Americans hospitalized for cardiac arrest are surviving now compared with a decade ago, a new study finds… Many people die before ever reaching the hospital. And in fact, of the more than 300,000 Americans who go into cardiac arrest outside of a hospital each year, less than 8 percent survive.

Rabinstein, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said in an email.
