CPR TRAINING KITS HELP STUDENTS LEARN IMPORTANT LIFESAVING SKILLS
Scottsdale, Ariz. (May 14, 2022) – Troon® and company Founder and Board Member Dana Garmany and wife Amanda, recently donated CPR training kits to two Phoenix-area high schools. Students in health classes at Cactus Shadows High School in Cave Creek, Ariz. and Horizon High School in Scottsdale received training from the American Heart Association on how to administer CPR. The CPR kits, which include an inflatable Mini Anne® personal CPR manikin, provide the opportunity for students to learn basic lifesaving skills. Troon and the Garmanys donated more than two dozen CPR kits to the two high schools.
“The CPR training kits are a great way to give students real-life scenarios and teach them, that even in the most awkward situations, you can still jump in and save someone’s life,” said Amanda Garmany, who serves as chairperson for the American Heart Association’s Heart Ball. “The more people who know how to administer CPR, the greater the chance a life can be saved of someone in cardiac arrest.”
CPR – or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. According to American Heart Association statistics, 5,000 people each year have sudden cardiac arrest in Arizona. CPR, especially if administered immediately after cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die.
