SaveMIHeart is a non-profit organization in Michigan uniting the community, first responders, EMS systems, and health systems to improve cardiac arrest survival. Our mission is to double survival by 2020 of patients who sustain a cardiac arrest in the community.

SaveMIHeart utilizes the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) to measure and report important cardiac arrest epidemiology, treatment parameters, and outcomes. SaveMIHeart works with communities and health care providers to implement evidence-based solutions that will measurably improve survival.
