Over 350,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur without warning each year in the United States, and approximately 88% occur at home. This medical tragedy is compounded by the fact that more than 70% of Americans feel helpless to assist because they were never taught CPR or, if taught, believe their training is outdated. A solution that could save the lives of your family and friends is to ensure all schools teach CPR while students are in High School. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a proven lifesaving tool that is easy to learn and to use. Every hour, 48 people will have a cardiac arrest event outside of a hospital, and of these individuals, 9 out of ten will not survive. If CPR is administered, the likelihood of survival can double or even triple – an important incentive for as many people as possible to learn CPR. If it happened to you, wouldn’t you want someone around you who could administer CPR and save your life? In fact, wouldn’t you want students to learn this skill while in high school? According to recent polling, over 80% of Pennsylvanians want this training to be part of the educational curriculum. It makes sense for high school students to learn CPR at the same time they are learning other life skills. In fact, many high school students have saved family, friends, and even teachers using CPR techniques they learned in health class. While many schools have offered students CPR training voluntarily, it is not a required course in Pennsylvania’s education curriculum.
