MySafe:LA teaches LAUSD students CPR.

High School CPR Courses Support CA AB-1719

MySafe:LA has been teaching people CPR since 2012. More recently, our EMS trained instructors have been teaching high school students in Los Angeles Unified School District campuses hands-only CPR in support of the State’s Assembly Bill 1719.

In part, the bill states:

 (a) If the governing board of a school district or the governing body of a charter school requires a course in health education for graduation from high school, the governing board of a school district or the governing body of a charter school shall include, commencing with the 2018–19 school year, instruction in performing compression-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This instruction shall include both of the following:
(1) An instructional program based on national evidence-based emergency cardiovascular care guidelines for the performance of compression-only CPR, such as those developed by the American Heart Association or the American Red Cross.
(2) Instruction to pupils relative to the psychomotor skills necessary to perform compression-only CPR. For purposes of this paragraph, “psychomotor skills” means skills that pupils are required to perform as hands-on practice to support cognitive learning.
To date, MySafe:LA has taught more than 45,000 LAUSD students CPR, use of an AED, and how to collaborate as a team. We utilize a PowerPoint presentation that follow’s the American Heart Association’s standards for CPR instruction. We plan to continue the program in 2020, and to see if our instructors can achieve a new high in reaching students throughout the City of Los Angeles.
