This fall we have been working closely with high schools in the Louisville area to try and teach every 9th grade student in Jefferson Co., KY hands only CPR. This week we taught at Jeffersontown High School.
As usual, the students were very receptive and did a great job learning hands only CPR. Their enthusiasm is infectious. By taking an approach of trying to teach at each high school in Louisville we feel that we will blanket the community with bystanders trained in hands only CPR.
We also offer a monthly hands only CPR class at the office of Louisville Cardiology. This class is open to any person interested in learning hands only CPR. Often there are a number of cardiac patients or their family members that attend the class. We had 15 people attend the class from a wide range of backgrounds in the area. It was a good week.
