School Requirement for CPR Training in the Works
According to WILX-TV 10, health advocates are discussing what's billed as a simple way to have more CPR trained lifesavers in Michigan requiring the instruction in school.
The bill would require that schools provide instruction in CPR and the use of defibrillators at least one time between grades 7 and 12.
The American Heart Association estimates that performing CPR until medics arrive can triple victims survival rates. Many bystanders don't know CPR.
