CPR and Anaphylaxisis: Staying Alive!
Today we all completed the very important CPR and anaphlylxisis training that we need to renew every year. Darren Schrock completed the training and checked out our compression technique. We stabbed each other with Epi-Pens and got a demo of a defibrillator. Here is what the government body Better Health suggests are the correct steps in administering chest only compression’s:
Chest compression’s are the most important part of CPR. Start chest compressions as soon as possible after calling for help.
To carry out chest compression’s on an adult:
Place the heel of your hand on the breastbone at the centre of the person’s chest. Place your other hand on top of your first hand and interlock your fingers.
Using your body weight (not just your arms), press straight down on their chest, by one-third of the chest depth.
Repeat this until help arrives or the person recovers.
Try to give 100 chest compression’s per minute.
So know that we all trained up, lets hope we never have to use any of what we learnt!
