• HLTAID001 Provide CPR – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

  • Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

    is a life-saving skill that can be easy if you have learned to Respond Right First Aid. The course provides you training, skills, and knowledge to make Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) a breeze and is compliant with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines. Anyone can learn CPR – and everyone should! Sadly, 70% of Americans may feel helpless to act during a cardiac emergency because they either do not know how to administer CPR or their training has significantly lapsed. This alarming statistic could hit close to home because home is exactly where 88% of cardiac arrests occur. Put very simply: The life you save with Provide Cardiopulmonary resuscitation CPR is most likely to be someone you love.


    Cardiac arrests are more common than you think, and they can happen to anyone at any time.
    – Nearly 383,000 out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrests occur annually, and 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home.
    – Many victims appear healthy with no known heart disease or other risk factors.
    – Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack.
    – Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating.
    – A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle is blocked. A heart attack may cause cardiac arrest.


    -The life you save with CPR first aid is most likely to be a loved one.
    – Four out of five cardiac arrests happen at home.
    – Statistically speaking, if called on to administer CPR first aid in an emergency, the life you save is likely to be someone at home: a child, a spouse, a parent, or a friend.


    – Failure to act in a cardiac emergency can lead to unnecessary deaths.
    – Effective bystander CPR provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32 percent of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander.
    – Sadly, less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.
