California to Provide CPR Training for Most Students!
In late September, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that will require CPR training for a majority of the state’s high school students.
Although the California law falls short of the American Heart Association’s efforts to get states to provide CPR training to all high school graduates, AHA volunteers cheered the new law, which will result in about 270,000 of the 377,000 California high school graduates each year being trained in CPR.

These guidelines are based on the most current and comprehensive review of resuscitation science, systems,
protocols, and education.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness, and is commonly the result of an electrical electrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and disrupts the flow of blood to the brain, lungs and other organs. Each year an estimated 350,000 cardiac arrest events occur in the United States in an out-of-hospital environment. Almost all of these events result in a call for help to 9-1-1. Without quick intervention in the form of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation, death from SCA is certain.
More people die from SCA than from breast cancer, prostrate cancer, house fires, guns, traffic accidents and aids combined!
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime. Without effective bystander intervention, the victim's chance of survival is less than 5%.
With effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim's chance of survival. With the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), can increase a victim's change of survival by 41-84%.
Be the Difference for Someone You Love!
If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you love: a child, a spouse, a parent or a friend. 70 percent of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests happen in homes. Unfortunately, only about 46% of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest get the immediate help that they need before professional help arrives.

Find a sturdy flat spot and lay your dog on his right side.Take the palms of your hands and place them on your dog’s ribcage over his heart. With smaller dogs and puppies you can use the 1-handed technique. Wrap your hand around the sternum directly over the heart and squeeze. For dogs with barrel-chests, like English Bulldogs, you may perform CPR with the dog on its back (like you would a human).
Push down on his chest so that you are compressing it about 1/4th to1/3rd of the way. You should do this at a speed of about 100 to 120 compressions per minute. After every 30 compressions, hold his mouth shut, make sure it is completely closed, and breath into his nose 2 times. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until your dog is responsive or until about 10 to 15 minutes has passed.
If you have to perform CPR on your dog or a friend’s dog, it’s important to try to stay calm. Remove any immediate dangers to you or the dog before beginning. If necessary, move the dog to a safe area before beginning. Have someone get on the phone with an emergency veterinarian right away while you perform compressions.
Unfortunately, if there is no oxygenated blood flowing to the brain for more than 10 minutes brain damage is almost certain and the chances of recovery are grim, so be sure to rush your pet to the veterinarian immediately. Sometimes performing CPR for a few minutes will give the dog enough time to recover just enough to start breathing on his own again.
