27. CPR

Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes and 2,000 children and teens in the U.S. die from it every year. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) gets blood flow back to the heart and brain in cardiac arrest, and CPR training is a high school graduation requirement in California and most states. Rebecca McCormac, from Project ADAM (Automated Defibrillators in Adam's Memory) at UC Davis Children’s Hospital tells us about about why school staff and students should learn CPR. Then visit Wisconsin, America's Dairyland - home to Project ADAM, Harley-Davidson motorcyles, and Cheeseheads.
