The purpose of this course is to increase a young victim’s chance of survival with minimal neurological damage.
This course is designed to align with the objectives for paediatric resuscitation level 2 as defined in the Core Skills Training Framework.
Cardiac and respiratory arrest are dire medical emergencies. Children are more likely to experience a respiratory arrest rather than a cardiac arrest. If an infant or child is going to have a chance of survival, CPR must be done immediately.
Unfortunately, many bystanders avoid performing CPR on children in fear of harming them. Taking no action is the real harm.
The purpose of this course is to increase a young victim’s chance of survival with minimal neurological damage. To do this, you will review the latest Resuscitation Council guidelines. These guidelines outline steps for properly checking responsiveness and breathing in the victim.
By the end of this course, you should feel confident in your ability to respond in such emergency situations.
