CPR Course Brisbane
Why you need CPR training?
Our CPR Course held in Brisbane will help you to develop the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. You will learn basic anatomy and physiology and how to apply the DRSABCD procedures for treating a casualty.
While CPR is a last resort intervention, a person without a pulse will all but certainly die, the physical nature of how CPR is performed may lead to complications which may need to be rectified. The most common injuries sustained from CPR are rib fractures, with literature suggesting an incidence between 13% and 97%, and sternal fractures, with an incidence between 1% to 43%.
CPR is indicated for any person unresponsive with no breathing or breathing only in occasional agonal gasps, as it is most likely that they are in cardiac arrest. If a person still has a pulse but is not breathing (respiratory arrest) artificial ventilations may be more appropriate, but, due to the difficulty people have in accurately assessing the presence or absence of a pulse, CPR guidelines recommend that lay persons should not stop CPR to check the pulse.
