ADVANCED RESUSCITATION (CPR)

FOR ENQUIRIES CALL 

First Aid Courses in Brisbane will provide you the skills and knowledge required to use specialised equipment in the provision of resuscitation in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines

You will learn to assess an emergency situation, its hazards and the management of hazards, and to assess the casualty (airway, breathing, responsiveness) and need for advanced resuscitation.

You will learn how to perform advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation both as a single operator and rotating with others and using a bag-valve-mask ventilation. You will find out about and learn to use equipment such as the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), equipment to provide supplemental oxygen including administering to an unconscious/conscious casualty and how to manage the flow of oxygen, and the use and insertion of oropharyngeal airway adjunct.

Our Brisbane courses cover the legislation and regulatory elements of first aid including consent, privacy and confidentiality and duty of care.

The course will also cover post incident debriefing and reporting and how to check and maintain equipment for future use including dismantling, disposal, storage, cleaning and decontamination and checking and diagnosing faults.

You will learn basic anatomy as it relates to breathing, the chest cavity, response and consciousness, airway, skeletal abnormalities and appropriate first aid for specific medical conditions.

There will be practical exercises to demonstrate what is being learned.
