Idaho ranks as the 29th state in terms of obesity levels. In 2013, the population reached its heaviest point as 30 percent of all adults fell under the obese category. This number has since dropped off slightly. Childhood obesity does affect a small amount of children, although it drops off as a child ages. 11.5 percent of 2 to 4-year-olds are considered, while 10.6 percent of 10 to-17-year-olds are obese (the second best rate in the country). The high school aged obesity rate drops even further to 9.6 percent.
7.6 percent of adults suffer from diabetes in Idaho, which is the third best rating in the United States. 29.4 percent of adults suffer from hypertension, which is the ninth best rating in the United States. Overall, Idaho is considered one of the healthier states in the country in terms of obesity and weight related side effects.
While a smaller state in terms of population, Idaho has a better than average health rating. With 28.9 percent of the population currently considered obese, it is lower than the national average. While understanding current health statistics and trends is one thing, knowing what to do about it in the event of an emergency is another. Proper CPR training can prove to be the difference between life and death. From attending a youth soccer game to dinner out with grandparents, it is impossible to forecast when this life saving technique may prove vital. This is why everyone should learn CPR, from stay at home parents to working professionals.
There are hospitals spread throughout the state, although in many of the less populated regions, residents may be forced to drive for an hour before reaching a hospital. Helicopter response services often prove the only available option for quickly transporting an individual suffering from a heart attach or other sudden medical condition to a hospital in rural areas around the state. It still takes time for the first response teams to make way to the home, playing field or place of business. Offering CPR services at a time of crisis may be the only option available, so obtaining CPR certification is the best practice for as many people as possible.
