Every day more than a thousand people in the United States experience sudden cardiac arrest and it kills several hundred thousand people every year. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, June 14, at 9 am CT, Roger White, M.D., will join us to discuss what happens to your heart during cardiac arrest.  What should you do to help until an ambulance arrives?  Where can you learn CPR?  How do you use an automatic external defibrillator? We'll find out the answers to these questions and more on the next program.  Join us!
