Education and implementation of resuscitation

(Resuscitation Counclil (UK) 2015)

The optimal intervals for CPR/AED retraining are not known and will differ according to the characteristics of the learner (e.g. lay or healthcare). It is widely accepted that skills decay within three to six months after initial training. Frequent 'low-dose' training may improve CPR skills.

Basic & Advanced Airway Management Courses

First Response airway management courses in Bristol cover both basic airway management and advanced airway management, which is the medical process for checking and ensuring an open pathway to and from a patient's lungs. First Response airway management courses will also cover the risks of aspiration and how to reduce them for the patient. Airway management is a key factor for when considering other symptoms such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation and anaesthesia for example.

Accessing and effectively managing the patient's airway are fundamental skills in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

After defibrillation, obtaining and securing a patients airway are essential to all other resuscitation efforts - without these, attempts at ventilation and restoring circulation will prove inadequate or useless. Unconscious patients, too, require effective airway management to help promote their recovery. It is therefore extremely important that any first aiders receive airway care training to ensure that they are able to confidently deal with a situation where a patients airways are blocked.

 

  • Patient Positioning
  • Managing the Blocked Airway
  • Suction
  • Head Tilt Chin Lift, Jaw Thrust
  • Guedel Airway
  • I-Gel 
  • Intubation

 

CPR training and Defibrillation training courses are also extremely important, and provide first aiders with the skills and confidence to deal with any related emergencies.
