Understanding Cardiac Arrest: A Life-Threatening Emergency

Cardiac arrest is a medical emergency with potentially fatal outcomes. Immediate and effective medical intervention is crucial in these situations to enhance the chances of survival.

Mastering CPR Skills: Aligning with Australian Resuscitation Council Guidelines

In our comprehensive CPR course, you’ll learn vital skills, strictly adhering to the Australian Resuscitation Council’s guidelines. These skills are crucial in recognizing and responding to cardiac emergencies, including proficiently performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).

Advanced Techniques: Utilizing AED and Ensuring Continual Care

The course encompasses training in the use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) and strategies for rotating first aiders effectively. This ensures minimal interruption in chest compressions, a critical aspect of CPR, and teaches you how to handle complications such as the casualty’s regurgitation or vomiting.

Incident Analysis and Psychological Considerations

Care and management post incident is also covered in this course. This includes conveying precise incident details to emergency services, understanding the importance of incident review, recognizing the psychological impacts on rescuers, and seeking necessary support. It also emphasizes the improvement of your personal skills and response times for future incidents.
