About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Cardiac arrest. The term 'prevalence' of Cardiac arrest usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Cardiac arrest at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Cardiac arrest refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Cardiac arrest diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
