EIGHT OUT OF TEN CARDIAC ARRESTS OCCUR OUTSIDE OF HOSPITALS
Every year, thousands of Canadians die from cardiac arrest because they don’t receive prompt medical attention. Eight out of ten cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital setting. They may occur in the home or in a public place and CPR is only performed by a first responder in about 15% of cases. When cardiac arrest occurs, every second counts. For every minute that passes without CPR, the chance of survival decreases by approximately 10%.
WHAT IS CPR?
What we mean by resuscitation is the practice of CPR. But it is essential to contact emergency services, 9-1-1, a quick dial that saves your life. CPR manually compresses the heart muscle and restores blood flow to the victim of a cardiac arrest, keeping them alive until an AED or rescue arrives.
RCR CAN QUADRUPLE SURVIVAL RATES
A landmark study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that CPR performed by first responders can nearly quadruple survival rates. In addition, the quality of life of victims who survived a CPR is significantly better if first responders first administered CPR to them before help arrived. By manually circulating blood through the body, the rescuer reduces the risk of cell death. That’s why it’s important to be aware of CPR practices. Not only for others, but also for yourself and your loved ones.
OVERALL COURSE OBJECTIVE
This Health Care Professional CPR course is designed to reduce mortality and morbidity related to cardiopulmonary arrest (CPR) through rapid and efficient intervention by the rescuer. The participant acquires the necessary skills to recognize cardiovascular emergencies, cardiopulmonary arrest, and airway obstructions in adults, children and infants. This training enables the candidate to respond to these various emergency situations. The training includes the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
- There is no required reading prior to the Health Care Professional CPR training. Specific bibliographies and readings from additional sources will be provided to help you assimilate the concepts related to the course.
Presentations via the interactive module of our academiesb.com platform:
- In order to explain the material, a series of interactive presentations have been prepared to focus and understand the main concepts.
- Practical exercises, scenarios and simulations will allow you to apply the theoretical concepts of the course in specific contexts and to put you in a concrete situation of analysis and strategic reasoning.
Throughout your CPR Health Professional training, you can communicate with the Académie Saint-Bernard by email, phone or Facebook Messenger. However, the preferred method of communication is email (to ensure that all participants have access to the same information and to avoid duplication of responses from the Academy). Saint Bernard Academy reads all messages. Questions will not be answered instantly; you will receive a response within 48 business hours.
Active resolution on alternative active training theory, reflection, concrete and active scenarios and simulation of emergency medical situations. The training also favors an inductive pedagogical approach. Each lesson begins with an exercise or a situation for a candidate in a decision, management or action situation. This first part often raises questions that are then clarified in the second part of the training by a lesson. Theoretical notions of medical emergency management will be presented in each lesson. These lessons are inspired by the realities of the field, encountered by the trainers of the Saint-Bernard Academy, all health professionals.
The online training sessions will be conducted in the following manner:
- Expositions of the skill elements to be mastered;
- Presentation via the interactive online module of the academiesb.comsite;
- Mannequin demonstration;
- Evaluation questionnaires confirming the mastery of the different theories;
- Exercise and simulation to assimilate;
- Practice at home and simultaneous theoretical input.
