My Students

My students are inner-city high school kids who strive to beat the odds and attend a four-year college after four years of high school.

These students are brothers, sisters, grandkids, etc.

They babysit and sit next to other students. We have had three code blues this year alone and all students need to know what to do in an emergency situation. Even if they never have to use the information, they still should know what to do.

Everyone needs to know CPR/AED.

My Project

An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias of ventricular fibrillation (VF) and pulseless ventricular tachycardia, and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electricity which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.

In order to teach the students how to effectively use an AED, we can use this AED simulator, which provides real life-saving situations.

The AED simulator will train them for hands on life saving situations.
