Wisconsin CPR Training For High School Students Required By Law

In passing 2009 Wisconsin Act 273, the legislature has required all public, private, and charter high schools to offer instruction in Automated External Defibrillators (AED) as well as both traditional and hands-only CPR in Wisconsin. The act took effect in the 2011-2012 school year, and seeks to better educate Wisconsinites on the latest life-saving CPR techniques. Healthline First Aid Wisconsin CPR classes are perfectly suited to these legal specifications.

Why Wisconsin CPR Classes Aren’t Just for Paramedics

A very small percentage of high school students will wind up with a career related to emergency medical services. Public education could be the only time their only chance to learn proven, life-saving resuscitation techniques. By ensuring high school students receive Wisconsin CPR certification, the legislature seeks to create a populace who can respond more effectively to emergencies. Healthline First Aid offers personalized CPR training to both professionals and amateurs. Our CPR classes are tailored to the experience level of the students.

Changes to CPR Training Milwaukee Health Teachers Should Know

2009 Wisconsin Act 273 calls for training in both cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the newly emphasized cardio cerebral resuscitation. Healthline First Aid’s Wisconsin CPR classes teach both of these life-saving measures which endorsed by the American Heart Association.

Wisconsin CPR Training Lifesaver Tip: CPR significantly increases the survival odds of a person who has just undergone a heart attack, and the first minute is the most important. The faster a first responder takes action, the more likely the victim will be revived.

Outdated methods of CPR training place a higher importance on “airway” and “breathing.” Years of modern study have concluded “circulation” to be far more vital to survival during the initial seconds following a heart failure. In 2010, the American Heart Association modified one of the central tenants of CPR training when ABC changed to CAB. The AHA has even begun to advocate compression only, or “cardio cerebral,” resuscitation for less trained bystanders, citing the supreme importance of keeping oxygen flowing to the brain and other vital organs. Hands only CPR also provides the added benefit of removing the potential reluctance a young person might have in performing “mouth to mouth.”
