Kern County Helping Hearts, Inc

"Saving One Breath At A Time"  


Kern County Helping  Hearts, Inc. is a  501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that educates on heart and  pulmonary awareness in our youth .  Sudden cardiac arrest kills more youth than all medical diseases combined.  

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. If this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs.

SCA usually causes death if it's not treated within minutes.

Rapid treatment of SCA with a defibrillator can be lifesaving. A defibrillator is a device that sends an electric shock to the heart to try to restore its normal rhythm.

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can be used by bystanders to save the lives of people who are having SCA. These portable devices often are found in public places, such as shopping malls, golf courses, businesses, airports, airplanes, casinos, convention centers, hotels, sports venues, and schools.

Learning the chain of survival saves lives.  

The term Chain of Survival provides a useful metaphor for the elements of the ECC systems concept.

The 5 links in the adult out-of-hospital Chain of Survival are:

~Recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of the emergency response system

~Early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with an emphasis on chest compression's

~Rapid defibrillation

~Basic and advanced emergency medical services 

~Advanced life support and post-cardiac arrest care

  A strong Chain of Survival can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of cardiac arrest.
