Provide basic emergency life support
The unit also teaches participants to apply the appropriate first aid procedures and to communicate the details of these emergency situations. The unit also includes CPR and care of the unconscious person in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.
This unit applies to all workers who may be required to provide an emergency response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.
- Respond to an emergency situation
- Apply appropriate first aid
- Communicate the details of the incident
Our Provide basic emergency life support training will help you manage and care for a person in cardiac arrest and teach you the skills of life support (correct ratio of rescue breathing to chest compressions) using the Premium Health Method. It will also teach you the management of life threatening conditions such as heart attack, asthma, anaphylaxis, bleeding and shock.
Premium Health believes every participant should have their own manikin - this means there is no waiting around for "your turn". Learning is best remembered by "the doing", this means the more time you actively spend time on the manikin the greater the retention of the skill, so when you may need to recall how to do CPR, you are more able to recall and perform the skill.
People over the age of 14 years are eligible to attend. Students attending the course are required to demonstrate their physical ability to perform at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult manikin placed on the floor. This is a requirement of the unit and not of Premium Health. If you are unsure of your ability to demonstrate this requirement please contact us on 1300 721 292.
