SCA Survivor and Spouse Teach CPR/AED-Use in Wayne County, Iowa, Schools

Morman Trail High School

HUMESTON, IA - Beginning this school year, students in Iowa’s public and private schools must take a class in cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) as a requirement to graduate.

Members of the Class of 2012 at Wayne County’s three high schools, Mormon Trail, Seymour, and Wayne Community, have met that requirement. They took the American Heart Association (AHA) Heartsaver AED class which involves adult, child, and infant CPR, the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED), and how to help a victim who is choking. The students practiced along with a video and at the end of the class had to show proficiency in CPR and the use of an AED. All successful students were then issued certification cards by the AHA. Several staff members at the schools were also certified earlier in the year during in-service days.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
