Albany Medical Center will donate CPR in school kits to Shenendehowa High School on Wednesday.     

The kit has 10 self-inflating training manikins, and an AED demonstrator.    


Students will learn hands-only CPR.   

 Nearly 300,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest each year, and only 11 percent survive.     

Having hands-only CPR performed more than doubles the chances of survival.
