The first link within the Chain of Survival is Early Access.

Call 9-1-1! This is the primary link in the Chain of Survival. it's referred to as "Early Access" due to the fact that seeking emergency care as quickly as possible is vital to SCA (Sudden Cardiac Arrest) survival. each minute counts.
Could you recognize the symptoms of SCA?
Loss of consciousness
Lack of pulse
Lack of breathing
SCA isn't the same as a heart attack; however, a victim of either condition needs an immediate 911 call.
