REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 When it comes to saving a life, having a quick response could make all the difference. High school students across the state are learning the basics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)\u00a0and using an\u00a0Automated External Defibrillator (AED). To help with these lessons, Ferris State University students stopped at Reed City High School on Monday, April 9, to work one-on-one with students. \u201cCPR is a great skill for anyone to have because it can save a life,\u201d said Mary Underhill, school nurse. \u201cIt is a requirement of the state that students be certified in CPR and have practice with psychomotor skills.\u201d As part of the lesson, students watched an American Heart Association video, then met in the gymnasium where they broke into small groups to practice compressions on a manikin. Ferris students showed the high-schoolers how to properly hold their hands while administering CPR, then walked their younger peers through the steps of using an AED.
