CPR in Schools

How much of what you learned in high school helps you today? Does any of it save a life?

In 2013, two Georgia boys (9 and 10) saved an infant’s life using cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). They weren’t certified. They never took a formal course. Every day, they walked by a poster in the cafeteria. It is that easy!

We believe that teaching CPR to students should be made fun and engaging. Yes, saving a life is serious, but learning how to do it doesn’t have to be. If students are not intimidated by the process, they’ll be more inclined to help. The CPR Jukebox is our answer to teaching hands-only CPR to students.

Most state legislatures have made it clear that CPR is important and students should learn it. Some states require it as a graduation requirement. Other states leave it to the discretion of the schools. The amount of time required differs by state. The majority of states follow the methods and teachings of the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.
