Course in CPR and Basic Oxygen Administration

On successful completion the course in CPR and Basic Oxygen Administration participants will be able to recognise and respond to emergency situations that require CPR and/or the application of oxygen therapy or oxygen resuscitation, as appropriate, until the arrival of medical assistance.

This includes the ability to assess the situation taking into consideration the casualty, risks, physical hazards (including poorly ventilated room, naked flame, or potential for spark or flame), appropriate response to take control of the situation and most importantly appropriately administer oxygen using specified delivery devices.

It provides you with the skills and knowledge to recognise when someone is unconscious and not breathing normally (Cardiac Arrest) and increase their chance of survival by calling an ambulance and performing potentially lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), including using a defibrillator, until emergency services arrive to take over.

Participants will also develop skill and knowledge to appropriately communicate the details of the incident including requesting emergency assistance, conveying details of the casualty to emergency services and relevant workplace officers and producing appropriate documentation according to established industry/organisational procedures.

This course can be applied in either the workplace or in a community setting.
