NASHVILLE (AP) — A proposal to require hands-on CPR practice in high school resuscitation programs has passed the Senate.
The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Jim Tracy of Shelbyville was approved 31-0 on Monday. The companion bill is still awaiting a vote in the House Education Committee.
Instead of just requiring instruction in the techniques and skills associated with CPR, the proposal would require “students learn the techniques and practice the psychomotor skills associated with performing CPR.”
