HLTAID009 – Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) teaches the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) 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.
This course is developed for existing workers in the industry who may require CPR training as recommended by the ARC.
There are also specific industries that require additional training such as childcare workers, school teachers and other industries.
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.
HLTAID009 – Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) 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.
Quick decision making and the correct knowledge on what to do could save someone’s life.
