Level 2 Award in CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
AED’s are becoming more available. In many public places, including schools, you will find this piece of life-saving kit. The casualty who is unresponsive and not breathing normally is in cardiac arrest and requires CPR immediately. Combining CPR with defibrillation will hugely increase survival rates of the casualties.
The British cardiologist and member of the Resus Council Professor Douglas Chamberlain said, “the only damage you can do to someone with an AED, is if you whack them around the head with it”
This practical 6-hour course will ensure successful delegates have the competency and confidence to administer CPR and utilise an AED. All delegates will have the opportunity to administer the defibrillation process using a training AED.
This course has the addition topic of choking procedure.
