Wheelchair CPR – Do you know what to do?

In society, persons with impairments are occasionally overlooked, particularly while providing first assistance. In actuality, there is no policy declaration from the Australian Resuscitation Council about the rescue of a patient for Wheelchair CPR, making it a safe task to move the patient onto the floor, and starting first aid treatments such as CPR.

In order to help those who have had a medical emergency, we have created a first aid rescue chart that shows how to move someone off of a chair and onto the ground. Since the patient could not have a standard body form and you must always secure your safety, it’s crucial to have a straightforward answer.

Below is a link to “Wheelchair CPR.”

We created a rescue chart that would be very helpful to organisations that care for wheelchair-bound people who could experience a medical emergency and need Wheelchair CPR. We advise posting this information on the noticeboard at work or in other places that are similar.

The problem would “impact hundreds upon thousands of individuals,” and it would be terrifying for families to not know how to get a member out of a chair in case of an emergency medical situation.

If support personnel lack this knowledge/guideline, the procedure may become quite difficult because they wouldn’t know exactly what to do.

The key “what ifs” are left for them to consider, such as what to do if the worst-case scenario occurs, how to get the person laying down, and how to give CPR if they can’t be extricated from the wheelchair – hence the Wheelchair CPR First Aid Chart.

The chart outlines specific actions you may take to confidently handle the circumstance.

How to perform Wheelchair CPR on a person who is in a wheelchair

If you would want first aid instruction to help with knowledge and abilities to handle any situation, such as a patient who needs Wheelchair CPR but is bound to a wheelchair and you need to move the patient onto the floor, our information is also on the Wheelchair CPR chart.

We hope that was helpful.
