Michigan Student Athlete Cardiac Awareness Month
House Resolution No. 44 was adopted in the House recently declaring April as Michigan Student Athlete Cardiac Awareness Month. We would like to thank Representative Martin Howrylak of the 41st District of Michigan and his staff for their hard work and dedication in sponsoring HR 44. Please click here to view the Resolution.
Michigan Student Athlete Cardiac Awarenss Month is a good time to talk with your children, school family, family members, coworkers, and friends about the signs of sudden cardiac arrest adn what to do in the case of an emergency. You should also make sure your child's school (and other public buildings you frequent) has an easily accessible defibrillator and staff members trained in CPR and the use of an AED.
Signs of Sudden Cardiac Arrest:
- Sudden loss of responsiveness
- May have seizure like symptoms
American Heart Association Chain of Survival:
- Immediate recognition of cardiac arrest and activation of 911
- Early CPR with an emphasis on chest compressions
- Rapid defibrillation with an AED
- Effective advanced life support
- Integrated post-cardiac arrest care
