Pomeroy students learn simplified CPR | Health
Students at Pomeroy High School spent the morning receiving hands on CPR training from the American Heart Association.
The 7th and 8th graders learned a form of CPR that requires two simple steps: call 911 and push hard and fast in the center of the chest. The American Heart Association says that Hands Only CPR has been shown to be as effective as conventional CPR in sudden cardiac arrest.
Thanks to a grant from Puget Sound Energy, The American Heart Association was able to send each student home with CPR Anytime kit that contains an instructional DVD and a manikin for practicing chest compressions. The kits will enable the students to not only practice Hands Only CPR, but to also teach it to their friends and family.
