MBIT prioritizes heart health with CPR training


In observance of Heart Month and Career and Technical Education Month (February), Middle Bucks Institute of Technology (MBIT) is taking significant steps to enhance cardiovascular health.

MBIT has introduced comprehensive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training across all its programs. The initiative underscores MBIT’s commitment to safety, health, and well-being for its students, faculty, and staff.

CPR instructor Gail Keagy emphasized the critical role of heart health in overall well-being. “CPR training equips individuals with a valuable skill that can save lives,” said Keagy. “By offering CPR training across all our programs, we empower our community to be prepared and capable of responding effectively during emergencies.”

To date, a total of 122 MBIT students have seized the opportunity to acquire these life-saving skills. Keagy expressed pride in the students who completed the course and rose to the challenge. She hopes that more programs and students will participate, especially since their sending schools do not offer similar training.

The CPR training sessions at MBIT cover essential techniques, including chest compressions, rescue breathing, and proper AED usage. Participants also learn to recognize signs of heart attacks or cardiac arrest and respond appropriately.
