Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), is a form of emergency procedure that involves chest compression with artificial ventilation with an intention to manually preserve the brain function before more measures can be administered by professionals.
The CPR course covers a wide range of topics that deal with respiratory and cardiac emergencies. It offers lessons on how to handle an AED, who should use it and when it can be used. The course concentrates heavily on various practical skills as well as student participation.
By the conclusion of the course, the students will have to undergo and complete various cycles of CPR when using a defibrillator. All this is designed to get the student confident and comfortable if ever tasked to carry out any real procedures. Another aim of the course is to fully equip the learners with the most relevant skills and knowledge in order to acquire a wide range of life resuscitation techniques in any emergency situation.
