Samboy Lim Bill turns into Law Basic Life Support Training in Schools Act
On June 30, 2016 the Samboy Lim bill has turned into ‘Basic Life Support Training in Schools Act‘ (Republic Act No. 10871) and is now a new law in The Philippines. This law requires all public and private schools in Philippines to give basic education to their students to provide basic life support training through the use of psychomotor training in an age-appropriate manner. It will teach students to give CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) and basic life support in situations where someone suffers Sudden Cardiac Arrest. CPR trainings are not new in this world. It has been practiced in Norway since 1960 and in 27 out of the 50 states in the USA have ordered the practice of CPR skills in high schools. Canada and UK also have similar proposals. Our neighboring countries Malaysia, Singapore and Japan have already begun CPR training in schools and communities. Together with these CPR training programs, AEDs has also become mandatory in public places and not only in schools, but also malls, sports clubs, corporations and generally everywhere where people gather.
