CPR COURSE BRISBANE

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A CPR COURSE BRISBANE?

Our CPR Course 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.

During the CPR Course Brisbane, our trainers will teach you the physical nature of how CPR is performed.

While attending your CPR Course Brisbane, you will also learn what happens if CPR is performed incorrectly, it 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%.

During your CPR Course Brisbane, you will learn 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.

However, 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.

CPR is an acronym for Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which is an emergency procedure that is often combined with chest compression’s and artificial ventilation in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest. 

It is recommended in those who are unresponsive with no breathing or abnormal breathing.

CPR involves chest compression’s at one third of the patients chest depth and at a rate of at least 100 to 120 compression’s per minute. 

The rescuer may also provide artificial ventilation by exhaling air into the subject’s mouth or nose (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) or by using a device that pushes air into the subject’s lungs (mechanical ventilation).

Why CPR Course Brisbane is needed? 

CPR is used on people in cardiac arrest in order to oxygenate the blood and maintain a cardiac output to keep vital organs alive.

Blood circulation and oxygenation are required to transport oxygen to the tissues.

The physiology of CPR involves generating a pressure gradient between the arterial and venous vascular beds; CPR achieves this via multiple mechanisms. 

The brain may sustain damage after blood flow has been stopped for about four minutes and irreversible damage after about seven minutes.

CPR alone is unlikely to restart the heart.  The main purpose behind CPR is to restore partial flow of oxygenated blood to the brain, heart and vital organs. 

The objective of the CPR Course Brisbane practical, is perform CPR and delay tissue death and to extend the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage.

Administration of an electric shock to the patients heart with the use of a defibrillator, is usually needed in order to restore a viable or “perfusing” heart rhythm. 

Defibrillation is effective only for certain heart rhythms, ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia, rather than asystole or pulseless electrical activity.  CPR may succeed in inducing a heart rhythm that may be shockable.

In general, CPR is continued until the person has a return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) or is declared dead.

•    Apply appropriate emergency first aid procedures

CPR COURSE BRISBANE FAQ’s (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)

The validity of online CPR certification in Australia depends on the organization that issued the certification and the specific requirements of the workplace or organization that requires CPR certification.

In Australia, the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) sets the guidelines and standards for CPR training and certification.

While some organizations may accept online CPR certification, the ARC generally recommends that CPR training include both theoretical and practical components to ensure that participants can demonstrate the required knowledge and skills.

It is important to verify that any online CPR course you are considering is recognized by the ARC and meets the requirements of the workplace or organization where the certification is needed. In some cases, employers may require hands-on, in-person training and certification to meet workplace health and safety regulations.

Therefore, it is recommended that you check with the specific organization or employer to ensure that they accept online CPR certification before enrolling in an online course.

In Queensland, the validity of a CPR certificate depends on the organization that issued the certificate and their policies.

However, the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recommends that CPR training should be updated every 12 months to ensure that the skills and knowledge of the person performing CPR remain current and effective.  A Training conducts the CPR Course Brisbane in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC).

Most organizations that offer CPR certification courses in Queensland will issue certificates that are valid for 12 months.

After this time, individuals will need to undertake a refresher course to renew their certification.

It is important to note that some employers or workplaces may require more frequent updates to CPR Course Brisbane to meet their workplace health and safety regulations.

Therefore, it is recommended to check with the specific organization or employer to determine their requirements for CPR certification renewal.

The cost of CPR courses in Australia can vary depending on the organization providing the training, the level of certification, and the location of the training.

For example, a basic CPR course for individuals might cost between $50 to $100 AUD, while a CPR and first aid course for healthcare providers might cost between $100 to $200 AUD.

It is important to note that some organizations may offer discounts for group bookings, so it is always a good idea to check with the training provider for any special offers or discounts that may be available.

Overall, the cost of a CPR Course in Brisbane is a worthwhile investment in the health and safety of individuals and those around them, as it can help to save lives in emergency situations.

It is not illegal to perform CPR without certification in Australia.

In fact, the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) encourages members of the public to perform CPR if they witness someone experiencing cardiac arrest, even if they have not received formal CPR training.

However, it is important to note that proper CPR training can help individuals to perform CPR more effectively and safely, and can help to increase the chances of a positive outcome for the person in need.

For this reason, the ARC recommends that individuals receive CPR training to ensure they are able to perform the procedure correctly in an emergency situation.

Additionally, some employers or organizations may require certification in CPR and first aid as a condition of employment or participation, particularly in industries such as healthcare, child care, and aged care.

Therefore, while it is not illegal to perform CPR without certification, obtaining proper CPR training and certification is recommended for the safety of both the responder and the person in need of CPR.

Yes, untrained people can perform CPR in an emergency situation.

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recognizes that in some situations, a bystander with no formal CPR training may be the first person on the scene and able to provide life-saving assistance to someone experiencing cardiac arrest.

The ARC encourages untrained bystanders to follow the following steps:

  1. Call for emergency services by dialing 000 (or your local emergency number).
  2. Begin chest compressions by placing the heel of one hand in the center of the person’s chest and pressing down hard and fast at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute.
  3. Continue chest compressions until emergency services arrive or until someone with more advanced training is able to take over.

It’s important to note that while untrained people can perform CPR, receiving formal CPR training can help individuals to perform the procedure more effectively and safely, and can increase the chances of a positive outcome for the person in need.

Therefore, the ARC recommends that individuals complete a CPR course to ensure they are able to perform the procedure correctly in an emergency situation.

Yes, CPR without breaths is known as hands-only CPR or compression-only CPR. In hands-only CPR, the rescuer performs chest compressions without providing rescue breaths.

This technique can be used by untrained bystanders or by trained rescuers who are unable or unwilling to provide rescue breaths.

The Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) recommends that bystanders who are not trained in CPR should perform hands-only CPR in an emergency situation.

The steps for hands-only CPR are as follows:

  1. Call for emergency services by dialing 000 (or your local emergency number).
  2. Begin chest compressions by placing the heel of one hand in the center of the person’s chest and pressing down hard and fast at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute.
  3. Continue chest compressions until emergency services arrive or until someone with more advanced training is able to take over.

It’s important to note that while hands-only CPR can be effective in some situations, providing rescue breaths along with chest compressions may be necessary in certain circumstances, such as for children, infants, or drowning victims.

Therefore, the ARC recommends that individuals receive CPR training to ensure they are able to perform the procedure correctly in an emergency situation.

Yes, the ratio of compressions to breaths in CPR do not vary depending on circumstances or the age of the person in need of CPR.

During our CPR Course in Brisbane you will learn that CPR for adults, the ratio of compressions to breaths is 30 compressions to 2 breaths.

For a child and infant CPR, the ratio is also 30 compressions to 2 breaths. However when delivering the breathes for an infant, it is important the rescuer provides 2 puffs of air from the cheeks.

In some situations, such as during COVID-19 pandemic or when the rescuer is unable or unwilling to provide rescue breaths, hands-only CPR (chest compressions without rescue breaths) can be used.

In this case, the rescuer performs continuous chest compressions at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute.

It’s important to note that while the ratios of compressions to breaths may vary, the goal of CPR is to provide oxygenated blood to vital organs, particularly the brain and the heart, until advanced medical care can be provided.

Therefore, the Australian Resuscitation Council recommends that individuals to attend a CPR Course to ensure they are able to perform the procedure correctly in an emergency situation.
