Meagan Marock
Senior Project Presentation CPR and Automated External Defibrillators WHY ??? - it is important to educate people o on the importance of and techniques of CPR.
- it is a skill needed for my future career goals
- getting certified in CPR and certifying others in CPR increases the chances of survival for someone suffering cardiac arrest My Research I researched the regulation of CPR and the placement of automated external defibrillators in public places, and their affect on someone suffering cardiac arrest. -sudden cardiac death is the number one cause of death in America
-about 900 Americans die from it every day
-about 300,000 deaths a year
-ninety-five percent of these victims dying before they reach the hospital Interesting things -for every minute that defibrillation is delayed, survival rate falls seven to ten percent
-the brain starts dying about four to six minutes after a person goes into cardiac arrest
- contain deep chest compressions with a rhythm of 100 beats per minute, which is roughly the same as the 1977 Bee Gees song, "Stayin' Alive"
-CPR does not always work; it probably fails more than it works due to underlying causes CPR can not fix
-North Carolina is one of the most proactive states when it comes to having automated external defibrillators in public places what i learned -Ventricular tachycardia- a pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute, usually between 150 and 200, with an irregular rhythm
-ventricular fibrillation- abnormal rhythm consisting of uncontrolled twitching or quivering of muscle fibers, causes blood to stay in the heart instead of being forced out
-a cycle consists of thirty chest compressions for every two rescue breaths, where five cycles are completed, taking about two minutes
-Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) are small, lightweight devices that are used to assess a person's heart rhythm and then administer a shock to restore a normal rhythm
- The most recent revisions recommend that the focus should remain on chest compressions and not stopping after the two rescue breaths to check for signs of circulation Product research- affect of CPR and AED's on survival rate
product- CPR certification and teaching a CPR class
was a learning stretch because:
-never been taught CPR
-only briefly learned about cardiac arrest
-never used an AED
MENTOR -certified me in CPR
-supervised the teaching of my class
-answered my interview questions and discussed
cardiac arrest, CPR regulations, and automated external defibrillators In the future and
personal growth teaching a class
-communicating with others
-expressing ideas so that others understand

getting certified
-know how to respond in an emergency situation
-learn more about the heart and how it works
-raise awareness on the importance of knowing CPR

working with my mentor
-collaberating with others
-planning and scheduling meetings
Myself -teaching is harder than it looks
- i am excited to enter the healthcare field
- public speaking comes naturally to me
- i am not as bad at time management as i thought i was
