Guidelines for CPR Training in Louisiana Schools. Bulletin No. 1638.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
Completion of a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is required for graduation from high school in Louisiana. This bulletin presents the guidelines for a course in CPR and was prepared with the cooperation of the American Red Cross (ARC) and the American Heart Association (AHA). At the conclusion of the course, students will be prepared to: (1) describe ways to take care of the heart, as well as the risk factors of cardiovascular disease; (2) identify the early warning signs of a heart attack and the need for emergency medical service; (3) perform one-rescuer CPR correctly; (4) demonstrate removal of airway obstruction for conscious and unconscious victims. Information on requirements for teacher certification for CPR instruction is given. Included also are course outlines provided by the ARC and AHA as guides to teachers in developing the CPR program. Suggestions are given for materials and equipment needed for the course and texts and other resources are cited. (JD)
