“Students should be confident that their classmates and teachers will be able to respond swiftly and decisively in a medical emergency.” – State Senator Michael Noland

040914cm0973SPRINGFIELD – High school students would learn lifesaving skills as part of their regular health education, under a plan unanimously approved by the Senate Education Committee today.

The measure would incorporate CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automatic external defibrillator) training into high school health education classes. During a heart attack, using both CPR and an AED together can dramatically improve a person’s chance of survival.

“This is about the safety of our students and school staff,” said state Sen. Michael Noland (D-Elgin), who sits on the Education Committee and co-sponsors the legislation. “Students should be confident that their classmates and teachers will be able to respond swiftly and decisively in a medical emergency.”

Under the plan, training in CPR and AED would not be a requirement for graduation, and students who feel uncomfortable with the training would be excused with a parent’s note.

The proposal (HB 3724) now goes to the Senate floor for a vote.
