Podcast: Bringing CPR into schools

A week ago, Resuscitation Council UK, together with the British Heart Foundation and the famous football player Fabrice Muamba, presented a 100,000-signature petition to Downing Street in order to make CPR mandatory part of school curriculum in the United Kingdom.

European Resuscitation Council spoke with Dr. Andrew Lockey, representative of Resuscitation Council, about their efforts to increase survival rates of sudden cardiac arrest in the UK by educating thousands of school children.

Wi-Fi for better grades

wi-fi zone
Wi-Fi Alliance conducted a survey among 501 US college students from both large and small schools regarding Wi-Fi access. Findings are very interesting:

  • Nine out of 10 college students in the United States say Wi-Fi access is as essential to education as classrooms and computers.
  • Nearly three in five say they wouldn’t go to a college that doesn’t have free Wi-Fi.
  • 79 percent said that without Wi-Fi access, college would be a lot harder.
  • If forced to choose, nearly half of respondents (48 percent) would give up beer before giving up Wi-Fi.
  • Seventy-two percent would rather wear their school rival’s team colors for a day.
  • More than two in five (44 percent) used Wi-Fi to get a head start on an assignment before a class was finished.
  • Many students reported that the availability of Wi-Fi influences their choice of coffee shop (52 percent), bookstore (42 percent), and restaurant (33 percent).

I wonder about the situation in hospitals and use of Wi-Fi among health workers. With handheld devices, like iPhone, which can provide rich Internet experience without the need to carry a laptop, one could really benefit from Wi-Fi access in hospitals. I sure would be very glad to have it at my work place.
