You only get 4 minutes from when someone’s heart stops beating before brain damage starts to occur. Don’t spend that time standing helplessly. Learn CPR. This course is designed to help provide participants with a thorough understanding of how to provide effective CPR to those who require it. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving procedure which involves both chest compressions and mouth to mouth. Its purpose is to restore partial flow of oxygenated blood to the brain and heart. Its objective is to delay tissue death and extend the brief window of opportunity for a successful resuscitation without permanent brain damage. People require CPR when they stop breathing due to a range of factors including cardiac arrest. An average of thirteen people in Ireland die from cardiac arrest every day with over 5,000 dying each year.  CPR can double a person’s chance of survival by keeping oxygen and blood circulating to the body’s vital organs. This is essential learning for anyone employed in the healthcare, childcare or homecare sector. In fact it is an extremely useful skill for everyone in their personal and professional lives to help them to identify and respond to cardiac arrest and other serious conditions. Completion of the course will ensure that all participants will be equipped with the knowledge, skill and competence to help provide CPR to those who need it and will also provide them with the knowledge required to operate an automatic external defibrillator (AED). This will enable them to interact safely with victims while engaged in the provision of care to them.  The Heartsaver course will take participants through the steps of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, AED use and how to assist a person who is choking. This will involve identifying those who require CPR training, taking steps to minimize risks to themselves, carrying out chest compressions, performing mouth to mouth, using a face mask and using an AED. A second component of the course will involve providing the knowledge and skills needed to help a choking adult using abdominal thrusts. Optional components to the course include Child CPR & Choking and Infant CPR & Choking. The course is classroom based and will revolve around practical demonstrations and assessment on the correct procedures of both CPR and choking assistance. The course is wholly interactive with participants spending most of the course engaged in practical demonstrations to learn the basics of CPR, guided by a certified CPR instructor.  The maximum number of participants allowed on the course is six. The courses we run are typically small and in some cases you may be provided with one to one instruction with a certified CPR instructor. Courses as such can last from three to four hours. Learners who successfully complete the course will receive an American Heart Association and Irish Heart Foundation certified card which is valid for two years. Learners will leave the course confident in being able to provide effective CPR to those who require it.  Benefits of CPR Training There are a myriad of benefits of being trained in CPR. Firstly CPR saves lives. Statistics show that the earlier CPR is initiated, the greater the chance of survival. The American Heart Association estimates that 100,000 to 200,000 lives of adults and children could be saved each year if CPR were performed early enough. A further advantage of knowing how to deliver high quality CPR means that you can provide the best care to family, friends and strangers should they require your assistance in such emergencies. This course will increase your confidence to give high quality CPR and show you how to use a defibrillator to provide an even better chance of saving a life. Undertaking this course is also advantageous because it provides learners with the confidence needed to assist somebody who is choking. In 2016 125 people in Ireland died as a result of choking. Abdominal thrusts are considered the most effective means of saving adults and children who are choking. Completion of this course will give employees and members of the public the confidence they need to interact safely with those requiring CPR or abdominal thrusts, helping to create a wider community of trained and certified people who can intervene and provide lifesaving care to those in need. On completion of this course employees will have the ability to work in a confident and safe manner which will contribute to a safer work environment.  Learning Outcomes At the end of the course students will be able to: •    Identify and recognise individuals in need of CPR •    Provide chest compressions to somebody in cardiac arrest •    Provide effective breaths to somebody in cardiac arrest •    Use a face mask and other barrier devises for infection control •    Use an automatic external defibrillator (AED) on adults and children •    Work in partnership with others to provide effective CPR •    Recognise choking in adults, children and infants •    Provide abdominal thrusts to adults and children Course Overview   There are two components to this course.  The first is CPR and defibrillation.

As such it is particularly suited to those working in the healthcare, childcare and homecare sector. It is useful for everyone interested in understanding how to provide effective CPR to people who stop breathing.  How long is the certification valid for? The certificate is valid for 2 years.  Who certifies this course? It is certified by the American Heart Association and Irish Heart Foundation How will I be assessed? The course is a hands-on practical course. Learners are assessed continuously after each component has been completed. Learners will have to demonstrate their skills at the end of the course by providing a complete run-through of the CPR process.    Read More
