Health, Strand 3, Day 4
CPR: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. This is a method used to start someone's heart when it stops
AED: Automated External Defibrillator. this is a machine that helps to start someone's heart once it stops beating
Things to remember:
Where the AED's are located (At Sunrise Ridge, they are in the gym, the faculty room, and the workroom by the library)
Calling 911 and getting trained medical help there quickly is top priority.
Getting an AED on the scene quickly will increase the victim's chance of survival.
Performing "Hands Only" CPR should be done until trained medical help arrives. It may be necessary to have someone switch in case of fatigue.
