What states require schools to have AEDs?


Sydney Hildebrandt

 

As of April 2018, there are thirty-eight (38) states that require CPR education for all students before high school graduation.1  That’s great news, but what about AED education? If CPR is performed properly until EMS arrives, you can increase a victim of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) chances of survival to 25 to 35%! However, an AED can increase the victim’s chances of survival to 90%!2 Teaching our students how to administer CPR and use an AED can save more lives and lead to a more prepared future.

 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to ANYONE, at ANYTIME, and ANY AGE. While SCA is not preventable, Sudden Cardiac Death can be avoided if SCA is treated properly and quickly with the use of an AED. Do you know if your school is required to have an AED by law?
