Research from Duke University School of Medicine, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, highlights a concerning gender disparity in bystander CPR response during sudden cardiac arrest. Despite the clear lifesaving benefits of CPR, the study found that women are 14% less likely than men to receive this intervention in public settings.


The study analyzed over 309,000 cases from 2013-2019 across 47 states and revealed this inequity persists regardless of neighborhood racial composition. With only a 10% survival rate for out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, closing this gender disparity in CPR response is crucial for improving outcomes and saving lives.
