Currently in their CPR unit, Health students are learning how to save lives. “If you’re ever in that situation, and hopefully you’re not, it’s important that you know how to do CPR,” health teacher Seth Morrow said.

Students in Health are learning life-saving skills in their CPR unit through Friday. Although students will not be certified, they will be well-versed in how to save a life.

“If you’re ever in that situation, and hopefully you’re not, it’s important that you know how to do CPR,” health teacher Seth Morrow said. “Imagine if you pulled up on someone who needed CPR, and you didn’t know what to do. How would you feel?”

Students, who have learned the steps of CPR, will then reenact them on a practice dummy. Health students are also learning about rescue breathing, which is used when the victim has a heartbeat but is not breathing.

“I’m glad we’re learning CPR, because then we won’t have to worry about what to do if someone has a heart attack,” freshman Colbie Hadall said. “Plus, knowing CPR looks good on resumes and stuff.”

But the ability to save a life can go beyond the medical field in the eyes of Hadall.

“I think it’s important that we learn CPR because then we can save people later,” Hadall said. “And even if we never need to use CPR, at least we have that skill under our belt.”

Morrow agrees, and hopes that students will remember CPR later on.

“There’s not a whole lot of steps, but it makes a big impact,” Morrow said. “Between rescue breathing and CPR, this unit helps prepare students for the number one cause of death in the US, which is heart disease.”
