Wyoming Student CPR Bill Wins Senate Committee Endorsement

CHEYENNE, WY -- A Senate committee on Friday endorsed a bill that would require Wyoming students to receive basic instruction in CPR before they graduate high school, with one proponent saying that the bill would create "generations of life-savers" if it becomes law.

The Senate Education Committee unanimously supported an amended version of the bill, Senate File 82. It now goes to the Senate floor for debate.

The proposal requires all high school graduates to receive basic instruction in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of automated external defibrillators. Students would not graduate without taking the course.

New Michigan Law Requires CPR Training to Graduate High School

LANSING, MI--Lawmakers in Michigan hope the odds of surviving a cardiac arrest improve in the state, where high schoolers will soon be required to take CPR training before graduating.

“We’re hoping this will help increase survival rates across all Michigan communities and beyond,” said pediatric cardiologist Monica Martin Goble, MD, an associate professor at the University of Michigan Congenital Heart Center, and an American Heart Association volunteer. “As four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home, this has the potential to increase survival rates across our communities.”

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.
