In brief: Collapse/LOC
When a child or adult collapses for any reason and becomes unconscious, CPR is performed.
This includes use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) in case there is a cardiac arrhythmia.

In brief: Defibrillators
Unfortunately students are not immune from cardiac arrest.
Student athletes occassionally have cardiac arrest and having an AED available can be life saving.
