Kids teach parents to do CPR

Filed under:

A recent study found that a 30-minute training DVD could teach adults to perform CPR just as well as the conventional class, which often took three to four hours. Now, researchers out of Denmark have found an innovative way to get parents to learn CPR...let their kids teach them. During the study, 7th graders watched the DVD at school and practiced CPR on mannequins. Then they took the materials home to their parents with instructions to teach their families how to do the method. Students taught an average of 2.5 people each, and health experts are hopeful that new methods such as this one may reach larger groups of people.
