Cardiac Issues in the School Setting

Audience: School Nurses and Educators 
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Thursday, April 4, 2013 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.

One school-age student dies every 3 days from sudden cardiac death in the United States according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. A typical pediatric physical does not usually lead to recognition of underlying cardiac conditions or symptoms.

Join Stephanie Lavin, MSN, RN and Laura Friend, Project ADAM Texas Coordinator, for a 1.5 hour program designed to enhance the knowledge of school nurses in the areas of cardiology and sudden cardiac arrest.

The program will address common cardiac conditions and how they can contribute to sudden cardiac arrest. It will identify strategies that schools may implement to improve cardiac arrest survival.

LukeLuke Visits the Operating Room

Audience: Students
Contact us for available dates.

When you’re a child, having surgery can be scary. This program helps students understand what happens when they or someone they know has surgery.

Students follow Luke throughout the process: checking in at the hospital with his parents, preparing for surgery, looking at the equipment in the operating room and resting in the recovery room. The program does not show an actual operation, but students have the opportunity to see everything as if they are really there.

We will send classroom materials to your group ahead of time, and the presenter will provide ample time for interactive questions.
