In Just One Class Period, We Can Teach Students to Be the Next Generation of Life Savers!


It’s back to school time and that means…Pop Quiz!

True or False: Sudden cardiac arrest usually occurs in a hospital setting.

Answer: False. Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death and, unfortunately, about 88% of sudden cardiac arrests occur at home. This makes it likely that a loved one who has been trained in CPR will mean the difference between life and death.

Question: For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, chances of survival decrease by ____ percent.

Answer: Chances of survival decrease by 7-10%. That's why it's important that we all learn how easy---and critical---it is to take action.

As our kids settle into the new school year, let's ensure they also learn the skills necessary to become the next generation of life savers--in just one class period!
