Know Your Plan
Does your school have a defined plan of action?
Where are
the
Automated
External
Defibrillators
(AEDs)?
Who knows
CPR and
maintains
control of the
hallways and
classrooms
during an
emergency?
How is EMS
activation
triggered?
Consider the Facts
Sudden Cardiac Arrest can happen to anyone
Sudden Cardiac Arrest
Foundation: 2013
1 in 50 schools in America
will have a cardiac arrest
incident each year.
American Heart Association:
2013
Average survival rate of an
out-of-hospital child
cardiac arrest in the U.S. is
less than 7.8%.
Did You Know?
In the United States, a
young competitive athlete
dies suddenly every three
days. (Heart Rhythm
Society, 2007)
The Role of the School
•A typical school day consists of 6 hours. The average
school-aged child spends 28% of the day and 14% of his/her
total annual hours in school.
Schools are responsible for providing a safe platform
for learning and sharing.
•Clarity of school staff roles in an emergency is essential for
coordinated response.
Developing campus-wide response and communication
methods ensures effcient access to emergency
equipment and minimizes rumors.
“Most schools are closer to achieving accreditation than they think. It does take
a little effort, but that effort is a small price to pay to be better prepared to save
a life.” - Sarah McGraw-Timmes, RN, Lancaster City Schools Nurse
Assisting Schools in Preparation
for Cardiac Emergencies
• Prevention
Assess students’ risk levels for sudden cardiac arrest and sudden
arrhythmia death syndromes.
• Readiness for Response
Anticipate and prepare for students with additional risks and health care
needs.
• General Preparation
Build emergency response policies with input from the medical community
that will be flexible enough to accommodate different students’
developmental levels.
