Who We Are
We are a team of experts and volunteers with diverse backgrounds and skills, all linked by our lived experiences with cardiac arrest. Our aim is to reduce uncertainty and improve understanding for anyone affected by cardiac arrest by providing information and resources to those in need. We understand that life after cardiac arrest can be isolating and full of unknowns. At Heartsight, our individual experiences are intricately involved in creating informational resources. We collaborate, iterate, and innovate to create trusted educational content that reduces past, present, and future uncertainty.
We are clinicians. We are researchers. We are survivors. We are co-survivors. We are grieving families. We are lay rescuers. We are first responders. We are advocates.
We are Heartsight.
Origin of Heartsight
The name, Heartsight, results from highlighting the three key moments where people affected by cardiac arrest feel most uncertain.
Understanding an event after it has happened.
Heartsight is a place of reflection to help you process the cardiac arrest, gain a greater understanding of the situation, and move your focus on the present moment.
The ability to gain an accurate and deep understanding.
Heartsight is a place of knowledge to help you understand your present situation, assess your needs in every capacity, and reach out to those who can help you.
The ability to predict what will happen or be needed in the future.
Heartsight is a place of guidance to help you prepare for the future and what’s coming, remind you of your coping strategies, and reassure you that what you are feeling is normal.
Heartsight is the flagship initiative of Resuscitation Council US, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempted non-profit organization dedicated to improving cardiac arrest outcomes and supporting survivorship.
