HLTAID009 Provide CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
19 July | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$55.00
This is a nationally recognised qualification and should be updated yearly.
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, call for medical assistance, and perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) procedures will increase the chance of survival for a person who is unconscious and not breathing normally.
In this CPR course, you will learn these 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 conveying 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, to seek help if required, and for improvement of own personal skills and response times.
This training session involves:
- 2 hours practical training
- A link to the online enrolment will be emailed to you when you register.
- You will be required to obtain a USI (Unique Student Identifier) to complete this qualification. (Details on how to obtain a USI can be found www.usi.gov.au. Please note: you do not need to obtain a new USI if you already have one).
