BILL NUMBER:S7096

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
requiring the commissioner of education to make recommendations to the
board of regents relating to the adoption of instruction in
cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of automated external
defibrillators (AEDs) in senior high schools

PURPOSE: This bill requires the Commissioner of Education to make
recommendations to the Board of Regents in regard to requiring high
schools to train students in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and
the use of automated defibrillators (AEDs).

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 305 of the Education Law is amended by adding a new
subdivision 52.

JUSTIFICATION: EMS treats nearly 300,000 victims of out-of-hospital
cardiac arrest each year. Effective bystander CPR, provided
immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a
victim's chance of survival.

Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone at any time. About 5,920
children 18 years old and under suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrest
each year from all causes - including trauma, cardiovascular causes
and sudden infant death syndrome.

The American Heart Association recommends that hands-on training be a
requirement for graduation. Several studies have demonstrated that
trainees, including school children can achieve acceptable levels of
skill proficiency in adult CPR in 30 minutes or less. This legislation
does not require all students to become certified in CPR. They just
need to learn the basic skills thereby making learning CPR easy and
affordable.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
