CPR training for the whole practice SEPTEMBER
Cardiac arrest is a medical emergency that can lead to death. With urgent medical care to restart the heart, survival is possible. Quick decision-making to recognise and assess a cardiac emergency, calling for medical assistance and performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) will increase the chances of survival for a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally.
This course is also offered on 1 December 2023. You will learn CPR skills in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines, including using an automated external defibrillator (AED), how to rotate first aiders with minimal interruptions to compressions, and what to do if the casualty regurgitates or vomits.
The course also covers communicating accurate incident details when handing the casualty over to emergency services, how to review an incident, to recognise any psychological impacts on self and other rescuers, and to seek help if required.
